We understand that every business has unique needs when it comes to logistics and transportation.

At BDL, we go beyond basic transportation with our comprehensive road haulage services. We aim to become an integral part of your supply chain, providing transport and logistics solutions that add value to your business.
BDL can provide panel and curtain-sided vehicles of all sizes through to articulated trailers in standard or mega format with an internal height of 3 meters. Each type is manned, monitored, tracked, and traced to ensure transit and delivery times are met.
Our road haulage services include collection and delivery, warehousing, distribution, and inventory management. We have a team of experienced logistics professionals who can help you optimise your supply chain, reducing costs and improving efficiency.
We offer Full Truck Load (FTL) services, which are often the most budget-friendly option for businesses that need to transport large quantities of goods over distances.
If Less Than Truck Load (LTL) services are required, then these are a more economical choice for businesses that need to transport smaller volumes of goods within the UK and EU and won't require a full truck. Put simply, an LTL truck can merge smaller consignments alongside smaller shipments from other companies.
We also offer Groupage, a method of shipping where goods from various customers are combined into one truck, container, or vehicle for transport. This approach is particularly beneficial for smaller consignments that wouldn't fill a whole truck on their own. Groupage is increasingly popular due to its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. It's especially useful for businesses that need to move smaller volumes of goods that won't require a full truckload.
In the context of road freight logistics, a "milk run" refers to a type of delivery strategy that originated from the method used to pick up milk from multiple dairy farms by milkmen in the past. Today, it's used to describe a route in which a truck makes multiple stops to collect or deliver goods at various locations in one round trip, optimising efficiency, reducing costs, and minimising the environmental impact.
The primary objective of a milk run is to streamline operations and maximise efficiency by reducing transportation costs, minimising the amount of inventory in transit, and decreasing the time goods spend in transit.
In a typical milk run, a single truck leaves a distribution centre or warehouse and travels along a predefined route, making multiple pickups or deliveries before returning to the starting point. The key here is that instead of sending separate vehicles to each location, one vehicle services all of them in a single trip.
At BDL, we offer and provide milk runs for automotive manufacturing companies right across Europe.
