Responding to rapidly growing customer demand
P&O Ferrymasters has expanded its fleet of reefers - refrigerated trailers - to enable more customers to benefit from the Company’s expertise in solving supply chain challenges for temperature-controlled goods.
The 25 new specialist trailers are being introduced to provide additional capacity for a major new partnership with an international business.
Combining energy-efficiency, tailored temperature management, competitive pricing, track and trace and impeccable hygiene, the reefer trailers offer customers expert end-to-end temperature-controlled transport across Europe.
The establishment of 24/7 operating enables the Company to deliver 70.0% of the business during nighttime hours and on weekends. This flexibility ensures rapid rotation speed and reliable passage of fresh, perishable produce throughout the UK, saving customers precious time, providing greater visibility on the status of goods and facilitating the creation of robust supply chains.
Sustainability is at the heart of the fleet expansion. After a rigorous audit process, the British Retail Consortium Global Standards has renewed P&O Ferrymasters’ Agent and Brokers certification for their Dover and Amsterdam offices, awarding reefer trailer activity in Europoort its highest AA status for the carriage of food products – the ultimate endorsement of quality. An array of plugins available at the quay and vessels will result in significant CO2 savings, supporting P&O Ferrymasters’ objective of integrating sustainability into its operations to make a positive contribution to economies and communities.
