Further Investment in our Isle of Wight Delivery Service

Thursday, November 9, 2017


Our Isle of Wight freight volumes hit a record high during the summer, and to accommodate this increasing growth we’ve just taken delivery of two further custom-built, double-deck new trailers.

Specially designed for our Isle of Wight delivery service, the state-of-the-art new trailers have been built to the lesser height of 4.6m, which is tailored specifically to fit on Red Funnel Ferries’ freight decks. In order to maximise capacity without compromising the safety and security of the freight, each of the new trailers features a double-deck, negating the need to double-stack palletised freight and preventing unnecessary damages.

Mark Robinson, Managing Director at Acclaim, said: “Our Isle of Wight delivery service is second to none and we will continue to invest in it to ensure we stay ahead of the game. Due to height restrictions on the ferries, many operators are forced to use smaller trucks for their Isle of Wight shipments, and in order to fill these trucks to capacity, freight will be stacked, increasing the risk of crushing damage, and potentially jeopardising the customer’s reputation.

Due to our partnership with Red Funnel, we are uniquely placed to offer a premium quality, but cost-effective delivery service between the Isle of Wight and Mainland, and are fast becoming the operator of choice for businesses and consumers on both sides of the water. These custom trailers are just another demonstration of our commitment to offering Island businesses the best possible service standards at all times.”
