European Road Freight

Since 1995, we have been operating European road freight services for all imports, exports and cross-trade movements. In our earlier days, prior to being a freight forwarder, we owned over twenty-six units and trailers which travelled between the UK and Europe, providing fast and efficient logistical solutions to companies both in the UK and on the continent. Road freight is the most utilised service we operate, and you could say it is our speciality. With over 25 years’ experience in land transport, we have notched up many miles and seen all there is to see.

Our core areas of activity in Europe include Spain, Italy, Portugal, Germany and Western Europe. We operate a full range of freight solutions to and from all these regions and countries, such as weekly groupage services that consolidate cargo and deliver goods in one manageable shipment, providing a reliable economic import service. We also provide full and part load transports with typical transit times of 2-6 days, depending on the collection and delivery points. As well as our comprehensive road services, we operate unrivalled European express freight services that can handle urgent or time-sensitive cargo.

Since Jaunuary 1st 2021 we have seen some big changes in the road freight industry and after many months of planning we are glad to say that we are fully set up to handle the new customs requirements for all imports, exports and cross trade shipments throughout Europe. Door to door you can trust Plexus Freight to be a key partner in your supply chain.

As of the 1st of January 2021 customs clearance is now required on all goods entering or exiting Great Britain. Here at Plexus Freight we have been working hard to ensure that all our client requirements are met. We aim to be in a position to offer a full range of custom services that will see goods transported in line with the new regulations. With strategically positioned custom offices throughout Europe, we are able to ship goods quickly and efficiently ensuring that we effectively handle all matters of customs for our clients both in the UK and throughout Europe.

As with all road freight, the safety of our client’s cargo is paramount, which is where our many years of experience helps us to overcome the most complicated loads or shipments. Since 1995, we have built a very trusted network of partner agents and depots that allow us to transport all kinds of cargo, from pallet and crates to loose goods and over-sized machinery. Whilst most of our freight is moved using standard articulated vehicles, we often ship goods using more specialist trucks, such as flatbeds or mega trailers, if you need some extra height. It is both our knowledge and flexibility that set us apart from many of our road freight competitors, and with the 24/7 freight team always ready to support our customers when they need us, we believe we can continue to grow our successful European road freight services in the future.

Shipping equipment overseas and importing equipment into the UK is not our expertise. Over recent months as a company we have done both, having trawled the internet for advice and quotes I came across Plexus Freight and Glen Freeth-Selway. Having no skills in these matters I knew immediately I had made the correct decision by choosing to use Plexus Freight for our requirements.

We at Hard Rock Flooring, have been using the services of Plexus Freight for 12 years. During this time we have received outstanding service and reliability. If there has been a problem we have been kept informed of progress on a regular basis, which is of real value in this day and age. We can thoroughly recommend Plexus Freight.

Managing Director, Hardrock Flooring

I use Plexus Freight for all our Italian and Spanish collections for our tile business in Cornwall. Dealt with them now for around 6 years and the service is brilliant. From booking to delivery, kept informed every step of the way and if there is a problem (which is very rare), notified immediately and sorted out swiftly. Great team and a real pleasure to deal with.
