The consumer goods sector always has and always will demand the very highest standards of quality control.
Our flexibility and operational methodology are the primary reasons we perform so well in this sector. We use the full range of our logistics services, including road and rail transport, container logistics and warehousing, and we are able to use our huge distribution network to flex resource during our customers’ peak times, operating a pay-as-you-go model to pass on savings to the customer.
The diversity of our operation allows us to flex resource in this way between different markets, and we enjoy longstanding relationships with both customers moving 100,000 loads a year and those moving only a few per week. Eddie Stobart road transport takes care of the full loads, and less-than-full loads right down to single pallet movements are carried by our partners Speedy Freight and The Pallet Network, making the Eddie Stobart group a solution that works for all.
Our operations in this sector span every aspect of the end-to-end supply chain – including full product and packaging management and extensive co-packing solutions for many household brands – and a significant portion of our eight million square feet of warehousing is dedicated to it.
All of our operations conform to strict British Retail Consortium guidelines and our consultative approach, which often sees us embedded within our customers’ operation, ensures that we develop and deliver the very best route to market.
