Eddie Stobart s trucks are a familiar sight on the motorways of Europe and they play a massive role in keeping freight moving across the UK & the continent.
Now the Stobart trucks, with their female names and distinctive livery, are featured in this new DVD release of the second series of the Channel Five series, Eddie Stobart Trucks and Trailers. But this four DVD box set is not just about trucks it s also about the men and women that keep the Stobart trucks rolling 24 hours a day.
For the truckers, planners, and bosses of Eddie Stobart, time is money, and jams, breakdowns and empty trailers are cash down the drain.
Stobart make a delivery every 4.6 seconds, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It's a company of five thousand people, driving two thousand trucks, packing three thousand trailers, running two ports, two airports and endless freight trains.
In each episode we tell stories which will have characters facing high stakes. We'll get to know the bosses who watch every penny from the control room and negotiate multi-million pound contracts. We'll see the men and women who move millions of pounds of stock in and out of the huge warehouses and container ports filled with everything that keeps Britain going. But we'll also find out about the quirky traditions and routines that have made Stobarts a national treasure - and even meet the "Eddie spotters" who spend their free time in search of Stobart lorries...
All the time the clock will be ticking. Will they get the fridge trucks to the supermarket before the fresh food goes bad? Can they shave vital minutes - and thousands of pounds - off the time taken to unload and turn around a container ship? Can our tramper get home in time for his son's school play?
This is the story of the people who race against time, all night and day, in the wind, the rain and the snow, to get everything you eat and buy delivered to you.
