Last week our artic division was tasked with a little pre-Brexit job.
We were to send 6 artics with either flatbed trailers or sliding roof trailers empty all the way to Passau in Germany to make collections of 6 pieces each weighing 11 tonnes.
The sudden urgency of this collection was due to the UK’s impending exit from the European Union on the 31st October and as nobody was;
1. Entirely sure whether it was actually going to happen, and
2. What the real implications on road transport would be should it happen.
It was decided by our customer to make the decision to assume the worst (or best depending on which side of the fence you are sat on) and to send the trucks out empty…
Should Brexit have happened then the unknown could have meant possible delays of the pieces getting back to the UK in time to meet our customer deadlines… this would have been a costly and unacceptable outcome and therefore couldn’t be allowed to happen.
So having received our instructions, and in true Sussex Transport style we reacted immediately and positively to the challenge set by our customer. Our drivers who all love a challenge and something a little different are all experienced at driving both in the UK and in Europe so made the trip there and back without any dramas and in plenty of time so as not to cause any detrimental effects on our customers business.
We love it when a plan comes together and everybody is happy…. it means a job well done!!
