Full Truck Load (FTL)

FTL is suitable for businesses that move large volumes of goods via road freight and can fill an entire truck, whether it’s a dry van, flatbed, or refrigerated vehicle. Exclusively using a truck for your cargo has the benefit of faster transit times and reduced handling.

Less than Truck Load (LTL)

LTL is an excellent road freight option for businesses with smaller shipping needs, offering a balance between cost-effectiveness and reliable transportation services. It provides flexibility, cost savings, and accessibility to a wide range of destinations.

Accompanied vehicles

If you have time-critical orders, we offer express shipments (faster than unaccompanied) with 24 to 72-hour transit times throughout Europe. Having a dedicated driver for the shipment’s entire journey helps ensure cargo safety.

Unaccompanied vehicles

This is a more affordable option than accompanied vehicles, especially when there is a driver shortage.

Projects

"Denholm Good Logistics are providing an efficient and effective stock movement service from all over Europe – whilst coping with our supplier’s quirks and Lakeland’s very northerly location. They are continuously looking for improvements and innovative solutions and have demonstrated they have an eye for detail. All interactions, whether ‘online’ or in person, are positive – they are experts at delivering a modern world solution with a human touch."
"Following the audit, Denholm Good Logistics suggested that several of our shipments would not be impacted by longer transit times, which meant we could switch our main mode of transport to sea rather than road. Through Denholm Good Logistics digital solutions, we are now able to track all our shipments in real-time. These solutions have enabled us as a business to not only reduce our costs but to manage them more effectively too. We can now plan ahead more with our customers in the UK and our customer’s confidence in our abilities is returning.”

Frequently Asked Questions

If you require more information, here are the answers to frequently asked questions about our road freight solutions.

Do you collect containers from the Port of Felixstowe?

Yes, we do. Our “AA” rated warehouse in Felixstowe enables us to immediately store and deploy goods arriving on container shipping services in the Port of Felixstowe. This helps ensure your shipments reach their destination efficiently and on time.

Can you handle specialist shipments?

Our UK container haulage and European Road Haulage teams can transport all shipments, including refrigerated and oversized goods. Our highly experienced road freight teams are fully trained to oversee every stage of your delivery to ensure the safety of your goods.

Can you transport hazardous goods?

Besides specialist shipments, we can also transport hazardous goods to and from the UK. Our team, which includes haz-trained drivers, is very knowledgeable in this regard. We can provide personal and competitive road freight transport solutions, including UK container haulage and European Road Freight, to ensure that the process of transporting hazardous goods is quick and straightforward.

How will you ensure the safety of my shipments?

Denholm Good Logistics is committed to providing only the best road freight solutions for UK container haulage and European Road Freight. We take all the necessary measures to ensure the safety and security of your shipments, our staff and our fleet. As one of the UK’s most trusted road freight companies, we have also implemented a seven-point safety check system, ensuring we meet all legal requirements and the highest safety standards.

What locations do your European Road Freight Services cover?

We specialise in providing groupage, full load, and express van transit services throughout Europe. Our European Road Freight service covers Spain, Italy, Portugal, Germany and Poland.

Which road freight service is more suitable for small business owners?

FTL shipping is designed for larger or high-risk shipments that require the use of the entire truckload. This is faster than LTL shipping because it goes straight from the pickup location to the destination without making extra stops. Conversely, LTL is the most cost-effective option for small business owners as it combines shipments from multiple customers before transporting them. Since several companies will share the total road freight costs, you only pay for the space you need.
