FOOD INDUSTRY: (represents 28% of our turnover)

 
We export and import groupage, part and full load shipments for several major UK and European food manufacturers who produce dry or fresh/frozen food. 

Alpharoute arranges not only shipments of dry food such as wheat, oats, cereals, jam, sauces, etc. which can be loaded with normal trailers, but also shipments of fresh or frozen goods (full loads only) such as chocolate, dairy products, cheese, ice cream, fruits and vegetable with fridge trailers.

We have handled both types of goods very successfully for a many years and our knowledge and understanding of this industry requirements is second to none.
Arranging and meeting booked collections and deliveries, ensuring that each trailer complies with the highest hygiene requirements while remaining very competitive are some of this industry challenges met by Alpharoute's staff on a daily basis. Also, Alpharoute's great capacity to respond positively to major seasonal fluctuations is key to our growing success in this sector of activity.

Paper recycling is a growing activity and Alpharoute has a waste carrier licence to handle this type of freight in UK or across the continent.
