UK-based Speedy Freight, a provider of urgent or sensitive transport, has opened a new premises in York in the North of England.

“It’s a very cost-effective service for customers who need things doing fast,” explained Simon Chorlton, business owner of Speedy Freight’s Hull and Doncaster franchises. “Our system guarantees clients a premium service with only a marginal extra cost compared with a planned, shared-platform logistics service that would typically deliver within 48 hours.”

Chorlton added: “We have access to 4,000 vehicles around the country and we can deliver anything from an urgent medical sample to essential bricks to keep a construction site going. We only carry one client’s goods on board at a time and we go direct from the collection address to the delivery address, ensuring consignments travel safely and securely.”

The new Speedy Freight branch will generate up to 20 jobs for the local community, as well as providing a tailor-made responsive logistics service for the business community.
