Holiday Season Boosts Volumes for IOW Freight

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

With holiday season at an end, Isle of Wight businesses have been busier than ever, and we’re thrilled to report that this has had a direct knock on effect with the volumes of freight we’ve been transporting to and from the Island.

Volumes for our same day and next day Isle of Wight delivery services reached a record high during August, peaking at a 55% increase on 2016. The same day service, has proved to be particularly popular during the holiday season, providing the fastest route for sending goods to and from the Island at minimal extra cost.

Mark Robinson, Managing Director at Acclaim Logistics said: “Our unique partnership with Red Funnell has enabled us to raise the bar on Isle of Wight shipments, alleviating the headaches associated with transporting goods across the Solent, by providing a cost-efficient and reliable service regardless of the size or shape of your delivery. It’s great to see so many businesses on both sides of the water taking advantage of this service and we’d expect to see like for like increases in volumes when we move into the festive season.”
