Whilst Lockdown has presented its own challenges for some, it has also presented opportunities for others
With more and more people turning to on-line shopping and particularly in the run up to Christmas from now, through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, our e-commerce site at Wokingham has never been busier.
One of our Food Gift clients has seen over a 300% increase in sales for the same period last year – just to the end of October. When we sat down with them back in April to plan their Autumn / Winter forecasting we certainly didn’t expect to be in the position we are in now – and neither did they! Even with reduced working space, limitations on staff numbers, and no access to temp staff, we have been able to help them take advantage of the sudden increase in demand. We are sending thousands of orders a day, helping them move into new, on-line retail platforms, increasing stock lines by the week and remaining flexible on replenishment at an incredible rate. And we still haven’t hit the peak… phew !!!
If you need fast thinking, flexible, solutions driven logistics – we are your team – COVID or no COVID !
