When time is an imperative, selecting the right freight solution is crucial. But what options are available? Depending upon where you want your goods to travel from and to, Plexus Freight can offer a range of solutions to suit your budget.
What Are the Options for Next Day Freight Delivery?
Next day delivery within Europe
If you are moving freight between the UK and European destinations, including Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland, next day road freight is available. Using a two-man team, Plexus can provide tracked door-to-door delivery. Ensuring that your goods get to where they need to be within the required time frame. And in the condition you’d expect them to be. Available seven days a week, next day delivery is the safest way to ensure that you meet client deadlines.
If you need your shipment to be delivered quickly, but not necessarily within 24-hours, economy express may be an alternative solution. This service typically takes 72 hours to fulfil, and can be a more cost-effective option.
Next day delivery outside of Europe
If you are working with clients outside of Europe, next day delivery can be difficult to arrange. But air freight – whether import or export – can often provide a solution. At Plexus Freight, we operate air freight services between the UK and Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, and the USA. Depending upon the time at which the booking is made and the distance between your origination and destination points, 24-hour delivery may not be possible. But our priority service always takes between one and three days. This usually makes it the best option for time sensitive cargo that needs to travel to or from far-flung places.
How to prepare freight for 24-hour delivery
To ensure that your freight encounters no delays, it’s important to take a number of precautions.
- Make sure that your goods are packaged properly. If packaging is damaged in transit, it can not only mean that your goods are damaged, but that delivery is delayed.
- Ensure your paperwork is in order. If you work with a reputable freight forwarder, like Plexus Freight, you will be able to arrange an administration service that will ensure that all of your paperwork is completed correctly. If not, it’s vital that you check for yourself that you have all of the relevant documents in place. Including your Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number, customs declaration, HS classification code for your goods, your commercial invoice, relevant licenses, and certificates of origin.
- Check weight and size restrictions. If your goods are too big or heavy to be safely moved, with the best will in the world, your carrier will not be able to move them. So, make sure that the service you book suits the needs of your cargo.
- Don’t forget insurance. While reputable carriers will have their own insurance, this is unlikely to cover the full value of your goods. Having your own insurance is always a sensible safety precaution.
