The service is suitable for any operator looking to reduce costs by gainfully re-deploying drivers and tractor units on the mainland instead of making their own Island deliveries.
We offer both the flexibility of 'block' booked slots and the ability to cater for time sensitive ad-hoc shipments. Clients can simply drop trailers at our secure terminal in Southampton, complete the necessary paperwork, including any client invoked trailer checks, and leave the rest to us.
We offer a high level of service reliability making a complex just-in-time operation entirely feasible. For example, we can deliver to an Island store to meet a specific slot, unload caged goods, then load a refrigerated back load at another location and ship the unaccompanied trailer back to Southampton to meet incoming drivers and units.
For FMCG clients, Red Funnel terminal staff, shunters and Steve Porter drivers are fully trained in handling refrigerated trailers, temperature partitions, cages and tail lifts. We operate the youngest fleet and the largest vehicle ferries ever to serve the Isle of Wight with an unmatched record for service reliability and punctuality.Finding us in Southampton
