Better prices for regular work
For customers with regular work (a load a week or more) over a reasonable period of time, we can quote significantly better prices than for ad-hoc work. Prices remain fixed for the term of the contract though may be subject to standard fuel (and currency if prices are quoted in GBP) adjustments. The calculation for these is fully transparent, see calculator below.
We are able to price more competitively for tender routes because we can include the specified lanes in our overall planning routines when we are optimising traffic flows across Europe.
Multiple freight lanes
Our tender team is skilled in pricing large tenders with multiple freight lanes and equipment requirements. Please email us with your quote request, and we are usually able to respond with firm prices within a few hours. While we can process information in any format, we will be able to provide you with the quickest response if you include a spreadsheet with full postcodes and place names to uniquely identify each location.
Fuel and currency adjustments for long-term fixed price contracts
In order that our customers benefit from the best price available, we will normally agree a standard mechanism to adjust for fuel price changes. Our cross-Channel freight costs are in Euros, so we also usually need to make periodic currency adjustments if customers prefer a freight price fixed in GB pounds. These adjustments do move prices down as well as up!
When we give you a long-term price quote, we will also give a reference fuel price, a fuel cost multiplier and (if quoting in GBP) an exchange rate, all based on actual rates at the time of the quote. At the beginning of each month after the contract start date we will let you know if the freight price has changed. As the calculation is fully transparent, customers can use our interactive calculator themselves to check if there is any adjustment to the quoted price.
