GET YOUR FREIGHT SORTED NOW
It’s just seven weeks till Christmas, and demand for freight is already starting to ramp up as stores stock up for the Christmas rush.Here at TIL Logistics, our team is ready and waiting to ensure your goods are delivered on spec and on time across the country.
Our goal is to remove the hassle of your freight movements this Christmas …and our team of drivers and customer service staff are here to make sure this happens.We will be working around the clock to organise your freight logistics, answer your queries and deliver your products.
However, you can help too. Here’s a few tips to keep things running smoothly this Christmas period.
- With record levels of demand expected, we encourage you to book your transport early.
- Ensure you allow more time for transit, as the higher expected volumes will put more pressure on transit times across the country.
- Make sure you have the best transport solution for your needs. Our team are experts in identifying the best mode of transport for your goods and we work closely with coastal, rail and air transport providers to recommend the best solution for you.
- Talk to us about your freight expectations over the next two months. The more prepared we are, the better the outcome we can deliver.
With supply chain disruptions, lag times at the Ports and delays in coastal shipping, more freight is now being delivered by road.
And with Christmas less than eight weeks away, TIL is now entering its busiest time of the year, with freight volumes expected to increase by at least 25% over the next two months…that’s an additional 30 truckloads of food, beverages, Christmas gifts and products being transported across New Zealand every day.
Give us a call today to discuss your freight requirements this Christmas and beyond. We look forward to working with you during this time.
