Next day service for Isle of Wight.

Bournemouth-based transport firm Shears Bros has launched a next day service for the Isle of Wight.

The company says it is responding to demand from its customers and from its fellow Pall-Ex members to offer a more frequent, rapid and reliable service for the island.

Ian Shears, director, said: “Over the past month, 28 per cent of consignments we received required a next day delivery, so the implication is that there definitely is a demand and that depots are taking advantage of this new service.”

Shears has two bookings for sailing daily with Wightlink Ferries, and the next day service will be available for all deliveries from single full, half, quarter and Euro pallets through to multi-pal consignments.
