Specialist full and part-load operator, Continental Cargo Carriers (CCC), has invested a six-figure sum in 35 new trailers to modernise its fleet.
The new trailers will join the company’s current fleet of 270 trailers, maintaining the reliability of its reputable road operation as it continues to deliver the best service for its UK and European customers.
In addition to the new trailers, all of CCC’s trailers are now tracked. This time-saving benefit gives customers an immediate response to the location of trailers carrying their goods without having to call drivers for an update.
Marco Riccomini, Manager at CCC, said: “The new trailers are a welcome addition to our fleet, and look fantastic! They have many features including extra securing eyes, disc brakes to ensure braking efficiency and safety, and LED lights. Many of our customers are commenting on how nice they are.”
Carlo Turner, General Manager at CCC, said: “This is the second investment in trailers in the past year with another scheduled for end of 2019. We believe it is very important to maintain a high standard of equipment ensuring we operate a modern fleet that maximises pay-loads whilst benefiting from the latest chassis and brake technology but ultimately, looking good on the roads of Europe!”
CCC completed the relocation of its Ramsgate sales and operations team to Dartford earlier this year – the first of a series of developments following CCC’s acquisition by leading logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group in 2018.
Established in 1973, CCC is one of the biggest players on the roll-on/roll-off market between Europe and the UK, delivering daily full and part-load consignments. The company runs a 4,000m2 warehouse and employs more than 100 people in Belgium and the UK.
CCC’s UK team is now based in Europa’s £30m headquarters in Dartford, however CCC remains a separate operation. CCC also now benefits from Europa’s in-house IT and development team which has implemented many initiatives resulting in improved efficiencies across the business.
