Road Freight

Our European road freight service is second to none and allows you to transport your freight quickly at a fraction of airfreight charges.

We are not tied to a specific network and are able to utilise many different partners to get the fastest possible transport time. UCS has over 20 years’ experience and we have formed many successful partnerships which ensure the best possible service.

Because our road services are not limited to large palletised freight, you can benefit from European parcel services allowing you to pay based on total consignment weight or per item.

If you have large volume or urgent deadlines we can offer a dedicated delivery service for your freight. You have the peace of mind knowing that your freight is loaded on one vehicle and remains on that vehicle until delivery.

UCS can provide specific timed deliveries, so tell us when you need the freight to be delivered and leave the rest to us.
