If you’re an Island-based business and regularly transport goods to/from the mainland, you’ll be pleased to hear that we are cutting the cost of our same day service.
From January 30th, we will be offering all Island businesses a free Isle of Wight collection and delivery service for same day deliveries to/from the mainland, courtesy of our unique Cowes / Southampton Hourly Shuttle Service run in partnership with Red Funnel Ferries.
So, if you’re sending goods from Newport to Birmingham (or vice versa), you’ll only pay the cost of the mainland transit between Southampton and Birmingham – with no fee for the Island collection/delivery leg, and no ferry charge.
Managing Director Mark Robinson commented: “By utilising our unique partnership with Red Funnel, we are able to offer Island businesses a truly cost-effective same day service between the Island and mainland. The ferry crossing alone can significantly uplift same day delivery charges, so by eliminating this, we are effectively putting Island businesses on the same footing as their mainland counterparts. You only pay for mainland transit”.
The free Isle of Wight collection and delivery service is applicable to all same day consignments where the mainland delivery/collection point is located at least 50 miles from the Parcel Office at the Red Funnel terminal in Southampton.
