A massive thanks
to Hacklings Storage and Distribution for transportation of the fuel for the
safety boat.

The fuel for the
safety boat has to be one of the most important parts of the jig-saw puzzle and
moving it around the country to get it to the Safety Boat, Rib Energy, Liverpool docks, has been one of my biggest headaches!

Rapid and
efficient movement of hazardous substances, I have discovered, is not what I am
good at. Too many complications / regulations / considerations and
qualifications involved! But, luckily for me, shipping of hazardous goods is
just one of the things that Hacklings Storage and Distribution are good
at!

The introduction
on the Hacklings website, http://www.hacklings.co.uk, states “Not
all Haulage companies are the same” and I have to
say, that I agree. I have contacted quite a number of transport agencies to
investigate shipping this rather important load. As soon as I started talking
to Hacklings, I was amazed by their helpfulness and efficiency.

It seems to me
to be an effective organisation which great flexibility and rapid decision
making…which is a perfect combination, for changing situations, such as shipping
fuel for a safety boat, under the imminent threat of good weather and a launch
for the Irish Sea Crossing attempt.

So, thanks to
Hacklings for their quick and eager support for the WBA and the RNLI, two great charities, and also
for taking away the worry of transporting the large quantities of fuel needed
for the Safety Boat.

Thank you

Chris.
