Transport and logistics involves focusing on the safe and secure movement of goods and equipment. In the case of Relay, this involves collecting, storing, transporting, delivering and installing high value items, primarily bulky and fragile electronic equipment. The overall aim is always to ensure equipment arrives safely and on schedule at the end user’s destination.
Many businesses from a wide range of sectors rely on the logistics industry to transport valuable equipment around the UK and further afield in order for their business operations to be successful. Logistics goes further than just moving goods and equipment. For instance, it can include the storage, handling and packing of consignments in technical warehouses offering temperature controlled conditions, advanced inventory control and warehouse management systems and well-resourced internal and external security measures.
A company supplying transport and logistics will need to ensure the safety of goods throughout the transportation and storage processes. When moving delicate and valuable items it will be paramount to ensure that each item is well protected at all times.
Further to this, when moving equipment overseas, the correct legal and shipping standards will need to be followed. A professional transport and logistics company will have the knowledge around the requirements for each country they deliver to. This will help to prevent delays and so allow customer business operations to continue without disruption.
