Summer vibes made possible by logistics

Kristina Causer

Summer is nearly here, with a little help from logistics.

If there is one thing us Brits are really good at, it’s embracing even the tiniest hint of summer. It doesn’t matter if it’s still 10 degrees, if the sun’s out and the clocks have gone forward –  our shorts are on, the ice cream van is out, gardens get a tidy up and every opportunity to plan for summer holidays are underway.

Summer made possible by….

All those summer vibes are, as you may now have guessed, are all made possible by logistics! We move everything from desiccated coconut to ice creams, bespoke greenhouses, and all those travel accessories for weekends and holidays away. Summer weather and holidays also require the best summer outfits and every day we are sending trailers from UK to Europe to ensure everyone has their best summer outfit on too.

Our entire Operations teams are busy moving summer goods around the world…

Our Accelerate Team work directly with warehouses in Poland to move travel accessories such as travel adaptors and neck pillows across Europe and into the UK. Our Navigate Team are always busy with a product for summer, as there is always summer somewhere!

One of our most interesting customers is Alitex who design and craft incredible greenhouses. But these aren’t your usual garden style greenhouses, think Kew Gardens style! These greenhouses are shipped all over the world, crafted here in the UK and sent by our Navigate Team to America, carefully handling these fragile designs.
