CitySprint launches Freight Desk large and bulky service

B2B same-day courier firm CitySprint has announced the launch of Freight Desk, a delivery service than handles oversized, heavy and difficult-to-handle items.

Paul Gisbourne, COO at CitySprint, commented: “We recognise that in today’s economy, speed, reliability and convenience are of the utmost importance to businesses in every industry, but that moving bigger items to support this can present logistical challenges.”

Gisbourne continued: “Our new Freight Desk service is specifically tailored for the transportation of large and bulky items over 100kg and is a great addition to our current offer for our customers. Our nationwide local network means we can offer real agility, speed and flexibility to customers with ad hoc and ongoing haulage needs — both across the UK but also to countries within the EU.”

Through Freight Desk, customers can book same-day deliveries though the company encourages advanced bookings.

CitySprint’s freight and haulage fleet currently includes the following vehicles:

Artics (ideal for consistently large loads)

7.5 and 18 tonne trucks

Luton Box and Curtain Sider vans (available with or without tail lift)


DGSA-qualified vehicles

CitySprint’s Freight Desk can also source refrigerated and heated vehicles in a variety of sizes — from small vans to artic and ADR vehicles — which are in high demand.
