Our Business Unit 'De Rijke Continental' is fully specialized in transport to and from Great Britain. With a fleet of over 250 trailers, 25,000 crossings are made annually on various ferry sailings.

As a Rule, the trailers are shipped 'unaccompanied', i.e. drivers are not sailing on board the ships.


Transport Great Britain

Due to Brexit, the logistics landscape of Europe has changed significantly. The impact is enormous, especially for importers and exporters. Thanks to our up-to-date knowledge, De Rijke Group is therefore happy to offer you a helping hand. As a logistics service provider we are able to coordinate your transport from A to Z under our own management and have the right knowledge and expertise in the field of customs formalities and Brexit transport. 


Some benefits of your Brexit transport cooperation with De Rijke:

  • AEO-Certificate
  • Our very own specialised declarants with lots of experience regarding customs handling
  • Exclusive collaborations with customs agents in the UK
  • Personal management of transport from and to the UK, with own offices on both sides of the North Sea

No unnecessary costs

Our trailers are shipped unaccompanied. This means that drivers don't go on board. Because De Rijke Continental mainly ships trailers via Dutch ports, the busiest routes (Calais, Dover, Eurotunnel) are bypassed. This means that as few unnecessary costs as possible are incurred for waiting drivers with Brexit transport.


The close cooperation among the 3 offices of De Rijke Continental at Rotterdam, Felixstowe and Hull ensures that there are always drivers in the ports ready to take the trailers to their final destination. The products are in this way in safe hands, at every moment and at every location.


Variety of services

De Rijke Continental offers a wide variety of services in the UK transport. In addition to complete trailer loads (FTL), with both curtainsided- and temperature-controlled trailers, customers are also welcome to book partial parties (LTL). Smart solutions are also available for transports to Ireland / Northern Ireland and distribution in the UK.
