Rochefreight has taken delivery of three new Double-floor curtain-sider trailers to add to its fleet servicing its pallet delivery services to and from the UK. Rochefreight is a founder-member of the Pallet Xpress network in Ireland, and a member of the Pallet Track service in the UK. The transit times door-to-door IE-UK and vice-versa range from 2 working days for most areas to 3-4 working days to outlying mainland areas. Services to the Scottish islands add an extra day to the transit time.
At first glance, these may seem like normal double-floor trailers. A closer look will reveal that the upper floor can be moved up/down to facilitate the varying heights of pallets. A further closer look reveals back doors. Not the norm on this type of trailer. This variation enables the trailers to be loaded like normal trailers from the rear if required, and doesn’t confine them to pallet system hub-hub operations.
Rochefreight also operates services with its own vehicles and drivers on normal curtain-siders and flat trailers, outside of the pallet systems, offering groupage, part-load and full-load services to and from the UK, as well as European services. Additionally Rochefreight is a member of the Combined Logistics Network, and offers Air and Sea freight services worldwide.
