In addition to our nationwide HGV operation and regional home delivery services, we offer short-term and long-term warehousing and storage solutions across two sites in Teesside in the North East of England.
This 24/7 practical solution – alongside our seamless cross-docking operation – allows our customers to enjoy a fluid and flexible approach towards their transport and delivery schedules.
Our Services and Solutions
Secure Storage Solutions
Our warehousing solutions add much-needed flexibility and security into the supply chain, and is a popular option among our network of national and international clients. In order to support all of our clients' needs, our services includes container handling, palletising, labelling, barcoding, and pick and pack operations.
We offer short, medium, and long-term solutions, consolidating stock and eCommerce orders so that we can receive large volume orders into our warehouses in preparation for distribution.
All our processes are quality inspected ahead of outbound distribution, including reduced handling from experienced planners to meet customer expectations. From international blue chip companies to regional enterprises, we take care of our clients' supply chain needs, allowing them the confidence to focus solely on their core day-to-day tasks.
Over 45,000 Square Feet
Our two sites at our disposal Teesside, in Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees respectively, total over 45,000 square feet. These warehouses can be used for both short-term and long-term storage solutions for volumes both large and small.
We also have the capability and flexibility of increasing storage space beyond our existing capacity if and when required. ISO9001 certified and boasting the latest digital management systems, our warehouse solutions cover all aspects of e-commerce storage services.
Our warehouses' location in Teesside provides a strategic advantage with regards to last mile requirements. The North East of England is currently a hotbed for logistics, connecting the UK's main hubs in the Midlands to locations in the north of England, the far reaches of Scotland, and the rest of the UK.
In addition to the ease of access into Teesside via the A19 and A66, our warehouses' location is also accessible for rail and sea links. The recently-announced Tees-Valley Freeport is another factor that cements our prime location at the heart of the UK logistics industry.
The Freeport status set to be afforded to Tees Valley will make it the largest secure customs zone in the UK. This new national hub for international trade is designed to reduce administrative burdens and tariff controls, benefiting businesses by easing the customs procedure. Given our location, it puts ourselves and our customers in a prime spot to take advantage of the Freeport.
Key Hubs Throughout UK
Our HGV locations throughout the UK give us a strategic advantage in terms of delivery times and efficiency. We have a range of vehicles based in the key logistical hub of the Midlands during the week, while regular weekly routes to and from Scotland, and daily routes to and from the North East and North West of England allows customers to take advantage of part load services.
We offer a seamless cross-dock service that can help reduce clients' requirement for warehousing solutions, or to overcome access issues by cross-docking product from larger vehicles to smaller vehicles.
We track and monitor the entire process as inbound goods arrive at our warehouse, are then unloaded and scanned, before being reloaded for the outbound journey and the last mile leg. We offer short-term, medium-term, and long-term pallet storage options.
Our Teesside HQ has become the preferred outbase for a number of our retail clients who are able to trunk product to us overnight, scheduled for delivery in our vehicles the following day.
Experienced Warehouse Team
Our skilled and dedicated warehouse team are vastly experienced and, like our HGV drivers, are fully-trained to the highest of standards. Our commitment to excellence means that our workforce is always up-to-date with necessary certifications and qualifications, including forklift licenses, health and safety regulations, and IT systems accreditations.
With comprehensive digital warehouse systems in place, we're able to work to the highest standards aligned with ISO 9001 accreditation. Our job management system features bespoke API integration with two-way interaction for order fulfilment. This detailed data ensures a transparent and efficient supply chain, and the ability to guarantee dedicated delivery times.
All stock is scanned and tracked for the whole of its journey with us, from inbound, to warehouse and storage, to outbound and final destination, ensuring total customer confidence and satisfaction throughout.
