• Danzas (UK) has agreed with Danzas NV in Belgium to start new groupage services from the UK to Belgium and Holland.
Initially a fleet of five driveraccompanied 12m tii-axle trailers are being operated to link Bristol, London, Birmingham, Manchester and Bradford with Herentals, Roeselare and Zeebrugge in Belgium as well as Tilburg in Holland.
There are now three services a week in each direction, says Danzas, between northern England and the Continent, and two a week between London/ Bristol and the Continent. All five vehicles will operate in Danzas colours.
LI Danzas is also developing its Scottish operation, having moved into Scotland in November 1987 with the acquisition of Overall Transport (UK) and its offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow. It retained the Overall name to maintain a trading identity, but is now renaming the operation Danzas.
Scottish boss Gordon Ronald says Danzas is now planning to develop its groupage service network with more full-load traffic to the Continent, and several large contracts are in the pipeline.
Overall's existing groupage services are wide ranging, pro viding its Scottish customers with connections to Northern Ireland, the Irish Republic, Holland, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
For the link with Holland, Belgium and Germany, Danzas Scotland operates driveraccompanied 12m trailers with a thrice-weekly service in asso ciation with Danzas partners in each country.
