By offering this service to its clients, CML is now able to provide a complete end-to-end solution as CML’s Freight Operations Manager, Pat Treanor, confirms: “After completing our first rail freight delivery from China last year the uptake on our rail services from existing and new clients was phenomenal, so it was an inevitable conclusion that the rail product would evolve far quicker than the operators anticipated. It is no surprise that we are now able to offer LCL rail services for our clients providing a door to door transit time of around 28 days. Being able to offer our customers this form of transportation not only allows us to give our clients the most competitive rates, but shippers can benefit from a much greener solution within their supply chain helping to meet their environmental goals for 2018. All eyes were on this first shipment and we are delighted with how our first rail delivery has gone. The interest we are receiving in this service is increasing at an exciting rate as the potential it offers is becoming more publicised, and CML is looking forward to offering shipping by LCL rail to more and more clients in the future.”
CML’s first LCL rail freight shipment reinforces the company’s position as an industry leader taking innovative steps towards more efficient freight forwarding.
