Full Load (FTL)

Also known as Full Trailer / Truck Load (FTL).  FTL is ideal for larger consignments, for goods that need to be transported separately or when an express door-to-door service is required for fastest possible delivery.

With a Full Load (FTL) service you don’t share the truck or trailer with goods from other customers, the entire transport is dedicated to your delivery.  So no extra loading or offloading stops along the way.  What you get is fast and efficient transport, straight to your destination.

We also offer a full customs service that offers a highly cost-effective and seamless service from as little as one pallet.  The new customs arrangements can seem daunting for small businesses engaging in occasional consignments.  If you would like to find out how our Customs Service could help your business get in touch with our Customs Team.

Your Goods

We can collect or deliver to most of mainland Europe

If you are shipping a large amount of goods to arrive at one destination at the same time, a full load is usually the most cost-effective way of doing so. With full load we provide an entire vehicle / trailer (or more than one, depending on your needs) for your load, based on the type of goods or materials that need transported.

Our full load standard trailers can carry 26 loaded standard 1,000 x 1,200 (13 each side) or 33 loaded Euro 800 x 1,200 pallets.

When the number of pallets in your consignments can fill a trailer a FTL (full truck load) service is the best transport solution and provide the most cost efficient way to move your goods across Europe.  Our routes connect to all main logistics access points and plug into our network of leading European transport providers.

Additionally, if required, our own bases in Dublin, Rotterdam and Paris also act as strategic hubs from which your full loads can be broken down into groupage consignments to be transported onwards to destinations right across mainland Europe.  Similarly, we can also offer collection services for groupage consignments across all of Ireland and most of mainland Europe and consolidate these consignments into full loads as required.
