Client called SpeedLink on Friday at the end of business to arrange for an urgent collection of a consignment on Monday morning from JRC in Amsterdam. JRC was about to close for the weekend, and our vessel maintenance client was unable to get the shipment out to be transported by road to Algeciras in time for the Batuta calling in to port. After enlisting SpeedLink's marine courier services, we were given the task of collecting when JRC opened Monday morning with a delivery deadline of 17:00 the following day – a 1519 mile journey. Same day courier service specialists SpeedLink collected the shipment as requested on Monday morning. After loading, the vehicle departed Amsterdam at approximately 10:00 Monday and reached Algeciras at 16:00 Tuesday with an hour to spare.
