Dutch Customs Truck Seizure – Vehicle Restored

This Operator, represented by Simon Clarke, arrived at the Hoek den Holland ferry port hoping to board the Harwich ferry. Unfortunately the Dutch Authorities discovered a number of Clandestine Entrants (Illegals) hidden in the load of machinery. The load was destined for a time-sensitive national event and just had to be there.

Using our Dutch affiliates we were able to secure the release of the cargo in record time, thereby enabling the national event to proceed without interruption.
