Capital Expenditure Program Continues in 2016 (January 2016)

The company’s commitment to customer service is emphasised by the confirmed orders recently announced for new and replacement HGV equipment.

Following a total capital expenditure spend of £2.4m in 2015, Freightroute plans to spend a further capex total of £1.9m in 2016. Included in this total are 30 HGV’s comprising of both 18 ton rigid collection and delivery units and artic trunking units.

In addition the forklift fleet will be extended and an order for 20 straight frame curtain sided trailers has been placed.

Gavin Grant (managing director) was keen to stress the customer service aspect of these plans and how they support our stated objective of maintaining and improving the level of customer service.

  • Coronavirus update - 26th March 2020

    We thought we would like to take the opportunity to update our customers on our operation at the moment.

    Whilst we have seen volume drop from our non-essential customer base some of this lost volume has been replaced with an increase from our customer base with essential supplies.

    We remain committed to delivering our customers goods and playing our part, just like yourselves, in keeping the country’s supply chain going in these unprecedented times. All additional services, AM, Timed, PM, currently remain in place and will continue to do so for as long as possible.

    We have 40 members of staff (10%) currently self-isolating for different reasons and any staff members that can carry out their duties from home are doing so. It may take a little longer sometimes for our staff to answer the phone and hope you can bear with us on this.

    We are urgently looking for supplies of hand sanitizer/wipes and face masks, if any of our customers can assist with this please contact your local depot. We want to keep our essential staff as safe as possible as they carry out their duties, any help in this would be very much appreciated

    We remain positive and working together we can get through this situation, we hope you keep safe and stay well
