Traction Services

What are traction services?

Traction services are used when your business requires extra vehicles and drivers to support your operations. This additional resource acts as an extension of your own fleet. Traction services can be flexible and scalable to meet demand.

What is traction-only haulage?

Traction-only haulage is where only a tractor unit and driver is supplied to transport your own trailers usually on a dedicated basis for one customer.

What are the benefits of traction services?

Traction services allow businesses to be flexible to meet varying levels of demand. From seasonal peaks to one-off projects, traction services can scale from a few vehicles a day to hundreds of vehicles a day.

Traction services save you the cost of investing in a larger fleet when it may not be necessary. Quieter times for your business could mean that extra vehicles are sat unused. With traction services, you only pay for what you need, when you need it.

How much do traction services cost?

The cost of traction services depends on numerous factors, such as the number of vehicles and drivers you require, how long you need support, location, mileages covered, the type of work and the time of year. We pride ourselves on our outstanding service and competitive prices. X2UK is highly responsive and scalable to suit your needs.
