Our Customers Also Ask…

Still have queries? We’ve answered some of the frequently asked questions that customers have about road freight services.

Freight transport by road, or road freight, is the process of moving products or goods from one location to another via trucks, vans, and other road vehicles. Depending on the destination and source of the goods, different road networks may be used. It may also be necessary to work in tandem with other services such as rail or air to provide the best results.

Crossing borders often results in border control, customs, or a change in legislation. Choosing a good forwarding supplier like Allegro will remove the stress from regulations. Leave it to us – you can continue managing your business while we deal with your freight hassle-free.

Between July 2021 and June 2022, around 1.65 billion tonnes of goods were transported by HGVs in the UK alone. These goods travelled almost 20 billion kilometres in total, a staggering figure when considering the length of the UK is only around 1000 kilometres. Road freight accounts for almost 80% of the freight transportation within the UK!

In terms of import and export, in 2022 the UK imported 3.5 million tonnes of goods by road freight and exported around 3.1 million tonnes. This is a significant amount of traffic, meaning it is important to choose a reliable forwarder to make sure your shipments are handled properly.

As we have already mentioned, some of the key advantages of road freight are the point-to-point nature which demands less handling as well as the ability to choose between a dedicated or grouped service for speed or efficiency.

Another benefit of road freight is its flexibility – not only in how easily it integrates with other services, but also in terms of changes to the route. If you’re in need of a service that can adjust to changes in demand or destination, road freight might be the right solution for you.
