As the purse strings are continually stretched, and eco-warriors continue to hack at our consciences, the need for a more cost-effective and greener transport method becomes increasingly necessary. However, with every upside, there is invariably a downside.
Transit times for road/rail combinations are usually longer, and any cost savings are eaten away the further you stray from the rail hub. For cargoes which are not overly time sensitive, multimodal (or Intermodal as also referred) is a workable option for many, particularly for full and large part loads. For groupage consignments however, the longer transit time usually presents the key obstacle, and cost savings are less attractive.
Notwithstanding this, we can provide multimodal options when you need to squeeze the budget, and feel a little greener in doing so.
Dear Phil. In line with our ISO9001 accreditation we have to evaluate supplier performance and report the findings annually. The basis of this is to compare the number of deliveries your company has carried out, on our behalf, against the number of customer complaints we received and any other miscellaneous issues experienced during the year.
I am pleased to advise that ITAL have an excellent record with no complaints or issues recorded throughout 2013 so may I take this opportunity to thank you for all your assistance and hope that you will maintain this level of effective logistic service to our customers during 2014. Thank you.
