The move, from London in 1990 to our HQ in East Cornwall was timely. Lower overheads and a dedicated, committed workforce ensured that additional resources could be invested in the firm’s data processing and consignment tracking systems and, crucially in staff training. During the early 1990’s Neptune concluded that the imminent construction of the Channel Tunnel would be the turning point for the movement of cargo throughout Europe. We then invested further capital into specialised rail/multi-modal containers transiting across Europe. Neptune was one of the first to commence using the rail tunnel in March `94 for commercial freight traffic.
