Night trunking for Parcel and Pallet Network operators

By Ady | Nov, 06, 2020 | Latest News, Uncategorized

X2 have since their launch in 2003, been operating night trunking for a number of clients in the transport, and retail sectors. However back in October 2014 they began supporting one of the UK’s largest parcel operators with seasonal night trunking from a relief operation in the Midlands. Initially this was quite sporadic depending on volume, but developed in both scale and scope increasing in number until they were operating six and even seven nights a week, utilising their extensive 4PL resources.  The customer’s  volumes were set to increase and at that time X2 implemented daytime operations for a transport company operating in the automotive sector. These vehicles were therefore available at night to undertake additional trunks for the customer providing an enhanced core fleet at a very competitive rate. This allowed the customer to increase the number of customers and delivery depots serviced and fulfil peak volume requirements. Structural changes and new business wins for the customer resulted in what was a seasonal operation becoming permanent and X2 continue to support to this day, providing a 100% service level since commencement. If you would like X2 to review your own night trunking operations to see if we could also provide you with high levels of service at a competitive rate, please feel free to contact us to discuss in more detail.
