Trailer and Moffett to London in less than 24 hours

02-07-2013

Last week Flexitrans completed a slightly out of the ordinary transport. With less than 24 hours notice, we were called upon to supply one of our major clients with a 13.6 mtr trailer complete with its own forklift truck (Moffett) combination to load in Loughborough at 1500 hrs for delivery to a large shopping center in the heart of London with a strict offloading slot of 2300 hrs the same day.

With the close co-operation of one of Flexitrans many suppliers of such equipment, the operation was completed with much ease, exactly to the clients specific requirements. Proving once again that Flexitrans can handle any job at any time. Flexitrans can offer Moffet services for both European and domestic transport.
