Perfect 10 for Davies Turner’s haulage alliance

A haulage alliance between Davies Turner and D.Perfect & Sons, that is celebrating its tenth anniversary, is proving to be a wise and mutually beneficial deal for both parties.

Recognised as one of the UK’s leading independent freight forwarding and logistics companies, Davies Turner said the alliance with D.Perfect & Sons, which specialises in general haulage and container transport, provides it with a dedicated HGV fleet to move consol containers between its regional distribution centre in Dartford and the ports of Felixstowe, London Gateway and Southampton.

With the domestic and international haulage market still in a difficult situation, with issues over a lack of drivers, port congestion; and forward bookings, this alliance is providing surety of service for Davies Turner’s international ocean freight import and export consol services.

Tony Cole, director of Davies Turner & Co Ltd, and head of the company’s ocean freight operations says: “We find that merchant haulage, which our alliance with D.Perfect & Sons offers, enables us to book haulage in advance and guarantees that the tractor unit will be available when and where we want it.

“It helps us to secure timely transport of our clients’ consol containers, enabling us to deliver the flexibility, timeliness and reliability that they require.”

Dave Perfect, ( managing director of D.Perfect & Sons added: “Davies Turner is one of our largest customers and an excellent partner. It is really pleasing that our relationship continues to develop and grow.

“To mark our ten-year working relationship we have recently had one of our Volvo FH5 tractor units that we have added to our fleet sign written with Davies Turner’s corporate livery.”
