Athens

Athens is the capital of Greece and is its largest city. And it is here where our partner’s headquarters is based. Greece has been through the mill in recent years, and the general mood has been one of ‘crisis – crisis’. However, our Greek partners are determined to shrug this off and are actively working closely with us to develop our road freight transport service to and from Athens and Thessalonica.

  • We operate a minimum twice weekly service every Tuesday and Friday, both export to Athens and import from Athens. Our transit time is 4-5 working days from depot to depot, a Tuesday export arriving Athens the following Monday, and a Friday departure arriving the following Wednesday/Thursday.
  • We also transport dangerous goods to and from Athens in full scope of ADR and IMDG. Some UN numbers are problematic as many of the ferries are also tourist ferries so ‘freight ship only’ cargo can miss some sailings and take a little longer. The alternative of driving through Eastern Europe arrives a day later.

By road, unless any specific movement requires it, there is no requirement for customs documentation. As such, apart from the distance, transport to and from Greece is usually fairly problem free. It is not cost effective to use UK hauliers on the route, and to enable consistency our partners provide some round trip trailers which run to and from Greece each week, a round trip taking between 11 and 14 days.

From Athens, we also serve the Greek Islands such as Crete, Rhodes, Corfu and Kos, to name a few.
