distribution

With many years of experience, a modern fleet and the latest technology, at Advanced Supply Chain Group we have the expertise and capability to support the most complex national or international distribution requirements – whether boxed and palletised products or hanging garments, single or multiple collection points and volumes ranging from one box to full loads.

Using our intelligent supply chain principles we design the optimum transport solution to ensure that your goods are transported in the most efficient manner.

highly efficient distribution services driven by technology

Technology is at the heart of our business: The latest tools for smarter planning, route optimisation and driver and vehicle tracking play key roles in our distribution service, and our unique driver app with integrated bar code scanning manages collections and captures proof of delivery (POD).

Detailed real-time information is available via our online portal, which puts milestone tracking including collection, ETA status, delivery and PODs at the customer’s fingertips.

Our intelligent and technology-driven approach extends to our Nominated Carrier Scheme (NCS) service. We optimise collection and delivery schedules to reduce the number of vehicles at our customers’ distribution centres, and support automation by using unique license plate (UPI) technology and direct EDI links.

Our sophisticated IT solution gives customers a control tower view of goods throughout the distribution cycle with real-time, self-service reporting.
