Since initiation in 2014, Cronus Logistics has provided a truly innovative service uniquely linking the UK and Ireland through the ports of Bristol and Warrenpoint – establishing it as a new gateway on the Irish Sea.
Cronus Logistics operates its own ships, providing a standard 48 hour door to door transit from England & Wales to Ireland, breaking the mould of the more traditional LO/LO shipping services whilst simultaneously helping to reduce road miles and cut CO² emissions. Given that they have full control over both their vessels and the transportation on land, Cronus can control every element of the supply chain from the initial collection through to the ultimate delivery. Their vessels can accommodate their bespoke 45ft curtain-sided containers as well as the more standard 20ft and 40ft steel boxes and refrigerated containers.
In only 12 months Cronus Logistics has shown a real desire to offer a credible and viable supply chain operation across the Irish Sea, harnessing both their sea and road capabilities.
The Global Freight Awards winners will be announced at the official ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 19 November 2015.
