Urgent loads are being transported efficiently and safely from point A to B throughout South Africa and across its borders by Bridgewater Logistics, the country’s foremost road transport logistics provider.
Quinton de Villiers, managing director of Bridgewater Logistics, says that businesses rely on the company’s direct/dedicated load solution when they need to swiftly transport just more than 10 pallets, or delicate items straight to where they are required.
“Our many clients know that Bridgewater Logistics will be able to deliver their goods on time and, importantly, safely. Moreover, we are able to supply this premium road-transport logistics solution at very cost-effective rates without ever compromising on our high quality levels, which spans the handling of the items at the various pick-up points through to their final point of destination,” De Villiers says.
Of course, the company’s flexibility has also been a key differentiator, with this service catering to large shipments via a full-truck load solution, in addition to a direct-load offering that is ideally suited to high consumer demand goods or those that are temperature sensitive.
In both instances, the shipment remains in the same truck to accelerate delivery and avoid the risk of damage, as opposed to a less-than-truck load service where several stops are made and goods are unpacked and repacked a number of times before arriving at their final destination.
“In selecting a solution for their unique requirements, our clients will consider the size of their shipments; how fast they need to be delivered; and whether there is a small chance that they could be easily damaged during the transportation cycle. However, our seasoned logisticians, who are part of our robust project management team on the distribution side of our business, have always been ready to advise if necessary,” he says.
Bridgewater Logistics provides a comprehensive road-transport logistics service, which also includes specialist line haul, as well as distribution solutions, including warehousing and cross-docking.
