Transport

We still today continue with the traditions of the Group in offering a national distribtuion service throughout the UK. Our modern fleet, in excess of 120 vehicles, extends from panic vans to 44 tonne artics and includes almost 200 trailers with one of the most recognised and eye catching liveries on the UK road network.

We specialise in full loads, groupage and pallet deliveries in the ambient product market and only transport goods that are compatible mainly in the food, drinks and packaging sectors.

The full load fleet generally operates on a tramping principle servicing clients in the main industrial areas and clearing stock back to our warehouse locations.

Groupage and pallet deliveries are collected and processed through our hub located at the main site in Glenfield, Leicester. Vehicles are loaded throughout the night making sure they are on time for the first delivery the same day.

As well as utilising our own fleet we have long standing relationships with regional partners to allow us to give true coverage and cope with the seasonal demands of our customers. Each partner is continually audtied to ensure they maintain the exacting requirments and service that we promise.

Technology plays a fundamental part in the control, planning and administration of our  transport operation, we utilise Roadrunner software integrated with Telogis satelite tracking which gives us the vision and traceability of all consignments, allowing us to share information directly with the customer.

Each driver is equipped with a smartphone allowing them to view clear job instructions and input delivery confirmations which downlaods into our traffic management system.

Our customer services team oversees the delivery process ensuring compliance to contractual specification, effectively communicating any issues in a timely manner. The final part of the process is performed by the admin team who ensure the driver is debriefed, pod’s are posted to the internet and invoices are raised.
