Delivering the Gift of Christmas

Grace Reddish

The Christmas tree – a quintessential part of the festive season.

The smell of pine, the twinkling of lights and sentimental baubles hanging off the branches, it’s the centerpiece of your home, but have you wondered how it makes its way from the forest to your front room?


Our Operations Team first start working in October to begin the distribution of Christmas trees across Europe.

In total, they helped deliver over 100,000 Christmas trees this year across Denmark, Belgium, France and the UK!

Jari Rasmussen, Director of Operations, liases with Christmas tree distributors to ensure the trees make their important journey and arrive in time for the start of the festive season.

Not only overseeing the transport of trees around the UK and Europe, but Jari also maintains that employees at Baxter Freight are given a complementary Christmas tree!

“Christmas isn’t what it is without a Christmas tree! For me, it’s always important to show colleagues how valuable they are, and by giving out trees we’re able to spread the spirit of Christmas just that bit more.”



We wouldn’t be able organise the distribution of the festive favourites as effectively without the long-standing relationships we have with our partners.

HPH are one of the haulers we’ve worked with over the years to deliver some Christmas cheer.

“We have been working with Baxter Freight for a number of years, our second year supporting the journey of Christmas trees. Working with Jamie, Izzie, Lee and team is clear and concise, with any issues being immediately resolved. The guys are a credit to the company and a pleasure to work with.”
