COVID-19: Urgent solutions to your supply chain

Apr 3, 2020 | Article, News

During these unprecedented times, many supply chains are experiencing severe disruption unlike anything we have experienced before.

With the UK on virtual lock down, many businesses are having to close. Domestic operations have started to shut down, leaving distribution centres paralysed across the country and products in the supply chain in limbo. This means that additional costs are being incurred whilst goods are stuck in ports and warehouses, building up uncontrollable costs.

We can help you to control these costs, manage your supply chain and give you speed to market as soon as opportunities return.

We have services, facilities and advice that will significantly reduce your financial liabilities and generate immediate cash to retain in your business.

CONTAINER STORAGE SOLUTIONS
We are able to store full container loads (FCL) of goods in our modern port container storage facilities, plus we can offer FCL storage inland across the country. This can save up to 80% on quay rent, which you will be incurring at the ports. We also have options to load containers to trailers at your site, ready for your return to work. Alternatively, we can position them at one of our secure yards for immediate delivery to your warehouse upon your request and short notice.

PALLET & CARTON STORAGE SOLUTIONS
If you do not have FCL but have pallets or cartons, we can take these into one of our strategically placed warehouses in Flexistowe, Chepstow, Tilbury, Heathrow, Northampton or Manchester. We can store pallets, cartons or in bulk and if required rework and dispatch your products to their final destinations, either B2B or B2C quickly and efficiently.

UK DISTRIBUTION SOLUTIONS
Should you need UK distribution, we can supply vehicles from vans to articulated lorries including drivers on weekly or daily contract-hired agreements, all fully tracked and with state of the art communications and transport management systems installed. We can also deliver your pallets and cartons throughout the UK using our distribution network and parcel operations.

VAT & DUTY SOLUTIONS
We are able to suspend all your VAT and Duty for imported products both for FCL and smaller consignments by taking them into our bonded facilities. We are also able to give you advice on how to suspend your Duty/VAT deferment payments and we’d be happy to consult with you on these services. Our team of supply chain management experts are here to help you overcome any difficulty by looking after your products and managing costs.
