Efficient arrivals through Electronic Service Delivery

The ESDAL is the Electronic Service Delivery for Abnormal Loads. When we undergo abnormal load haulage, the Highways Agency state that we have to notify the police, highway, and bridge authorities. To streamline the process and get your cargo delivery moving quicker, we use this system to notify all parties electronically. The innovative mapping system also helps plot the most efficient route to get your haul delivered on time.
