EDG Group has been providing transport services for over 25 years and now boasts a fleet of over 150 vehicles in operation every day. Originally specialising in the delivery of live news, we have broadened our coverage to heavy haulage and multi-drop consignment delivery. With over 40,000 consignments delivered today we can offer transport arrangements on varied freight to anywhere in the UK.
Our modern fleet ranges from small 2 tonne vans up to 44 tonne articulated trucks with box and curtain-side trailers. At EDG Group we have outlined our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint with a vehicle renewal program which ensures our fleet operates in accordance with the latest European emission standards.
We deliver upwards of 40,000 consignments per day on behalf of a variety of customers throughout the UK.
Our vehicle renewal program ensures each of our vehicles has the latest engine technology, thus significantly reducing our carbon footprint when delivering to our customers. Furthermore, by continually improving our fleet’s technology our MPG capability is under constant review, which means costs to our customers are kept at a minimum.
An in-house driver training program ensures that we are able to offer a gold standard service. A strict criterion for driver recruitment ensures we have the very best drivers available, and a continuous improvement program means they will always be up-to-date with any law or legislation changes.
State-of-the-art trackers allow us to view a real-time map of all current vehicle locations and a whole host of useful data that enables us to monitor the whereabouts of any cargo. The software also allows geo-fence integration. This enables us to alert a customer when their consignment reaches a particular point en route, or is within a pre-determined range of the delivery point.
The whole of EDG Group’s logistics division is professionally focused and provides exceptional levels of customer service. Furthermore, we are continually looking at opportunities for innovation and improvement. For example, installation of the latest tracking software means we run a more efficient fleet whilst reducing fuel usage and utilising each vehicle more effectively. In turn, this means an outstanding and financially viable service for all our customers.
"EDG has provided an excellent service since taking over the Guardian distribution services from our London print site in June 2012. The team’s flexible and pro-active attitude, as well as their ability to get the job done right in the first place, has been very welcome. I now rely on them heavily and considerably more than our previous contractor. EDG Group has won more work as a result of continually proving their ability."
