A forward-thinking logistics firm in Rugby has launched a new continental service and has taken on new staff members to cope with demand.
Exact Logistics has expanded to offer daily services to and from Germany for small consignments of palletised freight as it looks to provide its increasing customer base with even faster overseas delivery options.
The company specialises in delivering palletised freight across the UK and Europe, with Germany being home to the majority of the company’s overseas customers.
To cope with demand, the business has appointed three new members of staff and made two promotions as it sees a considerable amount of growth.
Karen Shuter, of Exact Logistics, said: “Our services to and from Germany are a very important part of our business and our new daily service gives customers in both Britain and Germany even more flexible delivery options at a fixed rate tariff.
“Traditionally, British firms importing goods from Germany buy them delivered, however because of Brexit and the rate of the pound dropping it works out a lot more expensive to pay for transport in euros.
“We give customers the option to arrange their own transport which is managed by Exact and pay their delivery cost in pounds making it a cheaper option.
“Companies delivering both to and from Germany can rely on the fact that we have daily services and their pallets will be delivered in a good transit time.
“We have recently seen a considerable amount of growth and are very proud to launch this new daily service as it shows both a commitment to our customers and a confidence in the market.”
The company’s expansion has led to it recruiting three new members of staff as it appoints a new transport supervisor and two warehouse operatives and there have also been two internal promotions.
Karen added: “As Exact expands, it is essential that we have the best possible team on board to help us cope with this increase in demand.
“We are pleased to welcome our new team members and we would also like to congratulate our colleagues who have been promoted.”
