What is container transport and why is it useful?
Container transport is the transportation of goods in large metal containers. The containers can be easily loaded and unloaded, which makes them a popular choice for businesses that need to transport a lot of goods.
The main advantage of container transport is that it is secure and efficient. The containers are stacked on top of each other on cargo ships, so they take up less space. This means that more goods can be transported in a shorter amount of time. Container transport is also very safe, as the containers are not exposed to the elements and are less likely to be damaged in transit.
Containers are hugely beneficial when they come off cargo boats, too, as the universal size makes them easy to be unloaded from cargo ships and loaded onto the back of lorries, ready to be transported around the country.
A.Plessas Transport provides container transport throughout the UK. We have a fleet of over 20 lorries, so can transport a large number of containers at any one time. We also have a team of experienced drivers who are all trained in container transportation.
If you need to transport a large number of goods around the UK, then A.Plessas Transport is the perfect choice for you.
