‘Schools out for summer!’
As children all over the UK rejoice, those immortal words of Alice Cooper will no doubt be ringing in terrified parents’ ears as they contemplate juggling their busy work schedules in order to look after and occupy their loved ones.
Summer is also a time of year that presents Telford Transport Solutions (TTS) with a period of busy organisation on behalf of its customers.
As many of our manufacturing clients start to slow for summer, we find ourselves with a multitude of tasks to undertake.
Like last year, we are currently designing and printing boxes for the ‘Vegetarian Society’ whilst receiving food samples into our warehouse, from a variety of food suppliers, ready to put into the finished boxes. These will then be delivered to no fewer than 10 universities across the country, after the summer recess, in readiness for ‘Freshers Week.’
Our transportation department remains incredibly busy moving goods into our warehouse, in preparation for the traditionally busy retail trading period from September through to (and dare we mention it in July) Christmas!
For the many small to medium manufacturing and wholesale businesses who are not, as yet, aware of TTS, the quieter summer season might be a good time to mentally take time out in order to reflect upon your current dedicated courier, transportation, warehousing and linked 3PL requirements.
Ask yourself the following questions…
- Are you paying too much for your external transportation?
- Is your current warehousing and 3PL supplier as efficient as they should be?
- Are your current suppliers flexible enough to meet your future business requirements?
If you’d prefer, TTS is happy to come to you and talk about all your requirements.
We will use the opportunity to tell you about how we won’t tie you in to long term contracts and the fact that our flexibility enables us to work with an incredibly broad range of businesses.
We will also tell you about our extensive transportation fleet and our state of the art, centrally located warehousing facilities and of course – our realistic fee structure.
At TTS we love summer. It’s as much a time to relax as it is to prepare for the exciting business period that lies just ahead.
