From 1st September 2021 – We are pleased to announce that Nidd Transport Ltd will formally adopt the Delamode International Logistics brand to become Delamode Nidd Ltd.

The Xpediator Plc Group, which Nidd and Delamode are part of, made the strategic decision to consolidate the UK freight forwarding operations to operate under a single brand identity earlier this year.

Our Daily Spanish Service – All You Need To Know!

Whether it be Murcia, Valencia, Madrid, Barcelona or Irun, we are proud to be one of the very few UK operators who are able to offer genuine daily departures to Spain, with several depots littered across Spain and Portugal.

Thanks to Spain’s booming tourism industry, the country boasts a huge number of thriving companies and small businesses. That’s why whilst many UK based companies only offer a weekly service, which means holding back your goods until the weekend, we see offering a daily service as key to keeping your customers happy and their expectations in check. 

As a company we specialise in “Just In Time” deliveries, where we work with our long-standing and trusted local agents to deliver your goods on time to their destination.

Nidd Transport Joins 700 UK Logistics Businesses To Offer Emergency Delivery Service

Ripon-based Nidd Transport has joined over 700 logistics businesses, all members of the UK’s eight major distribution networks, to put their combined fleet of 23,500 vehicles at the government’s disposal.

In an unprecedented move headed by the Association of Pallet Networks (APN), the networks have joined forces to offer their services for the express distribution of critical emergency and food supplies. 

Between them they have 30,000 employees, over 750 depots, and offer 100 per cent national coverage by postcode. As a member of the Palletforce network, Nidd Transport is a leading distribution specialist within its own region, with knowledge of local distribution centres, essential businesses, hospitals and community hubs.

Tony White at Nidd Transport, said: “We are proud to play our part in this unique collaboration as the entire UK industry joins forces to transport the most vital supplies. Collectively our sector has unrivalled resource and the individual companies are local experts with vast experience of express distribution as a key link in the UK supply chain.”

Michael Conroy, Palletforce chief executive, said: “With members delivering to every UK postcode daily, Palletforce is uniquely placed to offer express distribution of critical goods – safely, quickly and reliably – underpinned by unrivalled local knowledge.”

APN chairman Paul Sanders says: “We are uniquely placed to offer our services to ensure that emergency supplies coming from anywhere and destined for any corner of the UK, can be delivered quickly, safely and reliably to support critical services, whether in rural or urban settings. The distribution of emergency supplies for critical operations – not least ensuring food in our supermarkets and well stocked pharmacies and hospitals – is one of the most important aspects of protecting the UK public during this crisis.”

Pallet networks are one of the most efficient forms of freight distribution enabling overnight deliveries of consignments of any size from a single pallet upwards, anywhere in the UK. Regional members collect freight from their local area, and transport it to the most appropriate regional Hub, where it is reloaded onto vehicles returning to its destination area.

This model is particularly important at a time when many users of essential goods are requiring small frequent deliveries of vital goods with many drop points within a given locality. In 2019 UK pallet networks delivered 26 million pallets of goods.

Brexit and the Haulage Industry

As you will be aware, the UK ended its partnership with the European Union on Friday 31st January 2020, entering us into a transition period (also known as the implementation period) that’s likely to last until the end of December 2020. Whilst in this transition period the UK will still follow EU rules.

Once the transition period ends there will be changes to the travel and haulage industry and the rules that we must follow.  One of the biggest changes Brexit may bring is customs procedures both for importing and export goods to/from the UK.

Nidd Transport have already taken steps to ensure that we are ready for these new procedures, such as investing in customs software and training courses for our dedicated team.

There are a number of steps you can now take to be prepared for the new  procedures coming into play from January 2021, most importantly registering for an EORI number.

Other steps include:

  1. Appointing an agent, such as Nidd Transport, to handle customs declarations on your behalf
  2. Confirm the Shipping Terms for your job
  3. Determine the Customs Procedure Code (CPC), relevant to your goods
  4. Clarify if your products are controlled goods (e.g. wines and spirits) and are they subject to an Export or Import Licence
  5. Provide a Commercial Invoice for every job – details to be included on this are:
  • Your company name and address
  • Description of the type of packaging
  • Description of product(s) together with Commodity Code(s)
  • The total gross and nett weights of the shipment
  • The total sales value of the shipment and currency
  • A declaration that the goods are of UK manufacture and origin. If the goods are not of UK manufacture or origin then the Country of Origin must be shown
