For assistance with hazardous goods and any further information about the strict regulation of this freight please call 0161 975 9000.

Specialist Parcel Delivery

Most major parcel companies won’t accept any liquid consignments or ADR parcels of any kind due to the rigours of their package handling facilities and expert knowledge needed in the handling of these temperamental packages.

This is a service which we at Sims Group can provide through our membership with special handling network, Hazchem. Thus providing these smaller consignments the individual care and attention they require.

European Haulage

How the Network Works

Once your goods are collected, they are brought back to our depot loaded onto one of our state-of-the-art double deck trunking vehicles for onward shipping to the Palletline central hub, or any of their regional hubs as required whereby they are unloaded, sorted and then re-loaded out onto outbound trucks for final delivery.
