75 new trailers in the fleet

In June, 75 new trailers are being introduced into the A2B-online fleet. The first of these trailers are going into service this week. All built to the latest specifications, with the biggest benefit being the improved quality of the floor. These trailers are replacing the oldest ones in the fleet, which are being retired.

With the excellent relationship and past experiences we have chosen to purchase from Krone Trailer.

Transport to the UK during the summer of 2023?

Roadworks at Haringvlietbrug and Heinenoordtunnel During the months of June, July, and August 2023, maintenance will be carried out on the Haringvlietbrug and Heinenoordtunnel. During these works, the A29, which is an important access road to the Port of Rotterdam, will be closed. This will result in increased traffic pressure on other routes such as the A59, A17, and A16 towards Rotterdam during this period.

New trailers

Since this month, the good relationship with our customer Jiffy is also reflected in our 3 newest trailers with advertising for Jiffy Products International B.V. on the door. Our sales manager Sabrina Waterreus was present when the trailers were commissioned (on the photo with Peter van Dieën, Global Logistics Manager at Jiffy).

Sabrina was told by the forwarding office that the cooperation is very nice and that contact with our Customer Service is good and smooth. That makes us happy! Thanks to all our contacts at Jiffy and of course also to our own toppers of the CS team!
