Laser and Le Shuttle Freight

Emily Woolford, 26th May 2023

As part of our 50-year celebrations, we took the time to reflect on the growth of Laser over the last 50 years.

Laser Transport International Ltd was established in 1973 in Dover and was initially engaged in the importation of new cars, customs clearance and associated activities. The company quickly expanded into transport, rapidly outgrew its Dover premises and in 1979 moved to Lympne Distribution Park, just 6.5 miles from what would become the UK Channel Tunnel Terminal.

Work on the Channel Tunnel began in 1987 and during the later stages of construction and commissioning, Laser worked closely with LeShuttle Freight (previously known as Eurotunnel) on commercial matters, service studies and provided trucks for live testing and the evaluation of its facilities.

On 19th May 1994 Laser was privileged to have the first commercial vehicle to travel from the UK to France and has been a customer of LeShuttle Freight ever since.

This year, Laser have collaborated with LeShuttle Freight to recreate the image from 1994 and we are so pleased with the results. These images reflect the history and grounding of Laser International and highlights the developments in our branding, livery and vehicle investment and represents our new growth as part of the Currie Solutions Group.

The images also emphasise that despite the developments, the heart of our business still is, and always will be, the same great service, knowledge and experience.

Thank you to LeShuttle Freight for being a fantastic partner to work with on this project and we are excited to celebrate your 30-year anniversary next year.

And thank you to three of our fantastic drivers for also being excellent models, Roy in 1994 and Dan and Karl in 2023.
