Covid-19 - Update 6th April 2020

The COVID-19 crisis continues to exert pressure on European groupage freight services. That said, Davies Turner continues to do everything to keep Freight moving for customers and partners alike, and still offers its full range of European destinations, both Import and Export.

Our crisis management team are constantly evaluating the ever changing situation both in the UK and across the continent. We are ready to face the challenges presented and are taking all possible steps to ensure continuity of service.

The Border between the UK and the EU continues to operate normally. Freight vehicles and their loads are passing with only minimal checks, and both Eurotunnel and the Ferry companies are operating full schedules, with added sanitary precautions.

Many European countries have imposed nationwide travel restrictions, mainly on private individuals. The transport of goods is still possible in all European countries. Our partners depots throughout Europe remain fully operational and our groupage networks continue to function at a high level. Nevertheless, tightening of restrictions in a number countries and markets are leading to declining freight volumes.

Various industries deemed non-essential are closed or have suspended production, so these volumes are currently missing in the various trade lanes. Davies Turner is monitoring these changes very closely in order to be able to quickly implement any necessary adjustments to schedules. We are managing to maintain frequent departures- to secure your supply chain.
 


How can you help?
 
Our request to all export clients, and for each individual order is to check that your customer is open for business and able to receive the delivery upon arrival. If this is the case then we continue to operate a daily collection service throughout the UK as normal.
 
We will continue to provide updates via our website, and on social media, but if you have further questions please contact your local Davies Turner branch contact, or for general enquiries dial 0330 030 1870
