nominated carrier scheme

We have extensive experience in managing inbound and outbound transport logistics, with the capacity to meet both large and smaller volumes and the agility to handle seasonal peaks.

We design efficient transport solutions to meet each customers’ requirements, offering a 24/7 operation with ‘drop and swap’ or live load / tip options to maximise flexibility. Our UK based fleet of multiple vehicle sizes and capacities is able to handle everything from boxes or pallets, to hanging garments, whether full or part loads

The success of our Nominated Carrier Scheme comes from an understanding of the unique challenges faced by retailers and suppliers operating traditional retail, e-commerce or omni-channel business models.

We design bespoke, technology-led NCS solutions that enable our customers to control exactly what is received into the fulfilment warehouse and when, with the ability to react to the sudden spikes in demand that occur in today’s fast-paced retail environment. If there’s a red-hot seller, if the weather changes or if some other challenge arrives, our customers have the agility to change inbound product at short notice.

Our solutions are underpinned by Vector, our award-winning IT system, combining both warehouse, VAS and transport management system modules in a fully-customisable, web-based portal that allows our customers to make the best decisions based on the most up to date information – even on the move. The control tower view provides real-time visibility of inbound orders and workflows, with direct EDI links to our customers’ systems.

The added benefits of upstream compliance and license plate technology include carton tracking capabilities, improved speed to market, reduced handling and dwell time, and ultimately reduced costs.
