Full and part-load operator and logistics specialist, Continental Cargo Carriers (CCC), recently invested a six-figure sum in order to modernise their fleet, adding 35 new trailers.
These new trailers will be added to the company’s currently existing fleet of 270 trailers, with the aim of ensuring that the company’s reputable road operation stays, by maintaining company reliability and delivering the company’s services to its UK and European customers.
On top of new trailers, all of the company’s trailers, will also be tracked in real-time, which customers can check themselves. This benefit allows the logistics specialist not have to worry about having drivers having to deal with providing updates, whether from customers or the company itself.
CCC Manager Marco Riccomini says that these new trailers are very much a welcome addition to their fleet. He says that, not only are they aesthetically appealing, they’ve also got a lot of bells and whistles, including extra securing eyes, LED lights, as well as performance disc brakes in order to ensure these trailers stop as well as they look. He reports that customers have commented on the new trailers, saying how nice they look.
CCC General Manager Carlo Turner, meanwhile, notes that this is the second investment the company has made in trailers within 2019, and that they also have plans to make another big investment around the end of 2019. He says that the company believes that maintaining a high standard of equipment allows them to make sure that they’re operating a modern fleet that’s can make the most of pay-lords, while being safe and efficient thanks to the latest in brake any chassis technology, and, on top of all of that, remains aesthetically appealing while travelling on the roads of Europe.
CCC also recently finished relocating its Ramsgate sales and operations team, moving them to Dartford. This is only the first of many developments that the CCC has undertaken following the company’s acquisition by another, bigger logistics specialist, Europa Worldwide Group.
The company’s UK leadership now operates out of Europa’s £30m headquarters in Dartford, but the company still operates as its own operation. That being said, CCC still benefits from Europa’s in-house IT and development team in the site.
