Straight Eight Logistics was founded following personal experience in arranging the covered car transportation of two classic cars to the Mediterranean and what materialised to be an evident gap in the market.
With an abundance of haulage companies from which to choose from it was a relatively easy process to obtain quotes for enclosed car transportation. However, once a company had been selected the process became more laborious. The vehicles could only be collected at times set by the haulage company. With weekly and bi-weekly trips to Europe it materialised that the vehicles risked being stored in the UK following collection until a covered car transporter had been filled and was ready to go. Disheartened at the lack of service and disinterest in ensuring that the vehicles were to arrive in the Mediterranean in time for an event the only option that remained was to drive them there privately.
Having led and developed companies into market leaders over the last 11 years Peter Bonham Christie took the opportunity presented to him and founded a logistics company focused on service and transporting vehicles to suit a client’s schedule.
