As you know, we will go great length to find a way to move our customers goods to the desired destination. And sometimes this even leads to new cooperation between our colleagues in DFDS’ network.
DFDS Marseille offered, for the first time, one of our current customers an integrated transport solution from the UK to Tunis which included a crossing from Dover to Dunkerque, railway from Dunkerque to Marseille and another crossing from Marseille to Tunis. All in all, the transit time was 10 days.
Guilhem Ridel, Freight Shipping & Logistics Coordinator, says: “This is the first time the Marseille and Dieppe agencies have worked together to provide a supply chain between Dover-Dunkerque-Marseille-Tunis – but hopefully not the last. “
Jimmy Marolle, Route Director & Head of Marseille Agency, says: “This door-to-door solution offered to our customer is a clear example of the advantage of connecting DFDS’ network through railway connections combined with a custom clearance solution that DFDS took care of. This integrated solution enables our customer Cust’ One to have one contact coordinating all operations which saves both time and cost.”
