HGV Waiting at New Holland Dock
HGV Waiting at New Holland Dock
I noticed this HGV operated by Robert Benney Transport was from Helston in Cornwall and asked the driver about his itinerary. He said that he had driven up to Tamworth with a load of potatoes and was now waiting to collect timber and return to Redruth and his total trip time was 2 days. I've checked on Autoroute and the distance from New Holland to Redruth is 397 miles and estimated journey time 9 hours. Another vehicle in the queue was from Radnorshire. This illustrates the flexibility of road transport.
