Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Tramp Service?
A tramp service, sometimes known as a tramper, is a service which can be provided even on short notice, and as a result, it does not adhere to any rigid timetable or set of routes.
EFW resource vehciles and drivers which stay with the vehicle overnight meaning there is no need to perform a round trip on adjacent jobs.
What is the advantage of a Tramp Service?
Tramping Services are particularly useful for reducing empty HGV running time. This translates to greater cost-efficiency and downtime in consignment delivery. Tramp services can also offer ambient, chill and frozen options for perishable and sensitive goods.
How does HGV Tramping work?
HGV Tramping refers to the practice of transporting goods over extended distances, either nationwide or through cross-borders in a HGV. These transportation routines typically take place over the course of several days. Drivers will often sleep in the cabin and for 7 day patterns the enlistment of multiple drivers can be employed.
As listed above, at EFW we offer extended duration tramping services for transport which requires multiple trips through the UK and Europe.
What types of customers are HGV Tramp Services ideal for?
Tramping services are ideal for a number of different customer types and sectors, including:
Importers – Unaccompanied Trailers & Sea Containers
National Haulage Companies
What is the difference between Tramping and Trunking?
Tramp services requires driving over long distances such as multiple, uninterrupted trips throughout the UK or going across Europe.
Trunk services is when a driver has regular routines without the requirement for overnight staying
