The Great Outdoors Made Possible By Logistics

Kristina Causer

As the hot summer weather continues, our innovative business community are creating and sourcing unique products to help us to get outside.

Britain is the 9th largest manufacturer in the world by output and over 50% of goods are exported from the UK. The breadth of our manufacture spans from cars and aircraft, to food, books and clothing and a whole spectrum of things in between.

We are also home to an entrepreneurial community who know a good brand or trend when they spot one. From sportswear, or the introduction of new emerging sports, being connected to the globe opens up not only business opportunities, but opportunities to connect people through sports and leisure activities, and logistics has a hand in making this happen!

If you’re a business that has an innovative product how far is that product reaching today? Do you ever wonder who and where is making the most of them?

Best of British design

Did you know the UK has a thriving leisure industry, innovating the design of fitness, leisure, and play equipment?

Beaverfit is one of our customers who began their journey as a challenge, set by the British Military and Tom Beaver’s passion for the toughest endurance based training, which led to the design of shipping container lockers. Today these units are shipped globally testing the strength and agility of the most elite to fitness enthusiasts.

Our role in this venture, may seem small, but behind the scenes we have been connecting Beaverfit to the European market delivering 100’s of their lockers right across Europe. Our vast network of hauliers enables us to connect companies like Beaverfit to the right supply chain solution, handling all the customs paperwork and tracking and ensuring their goods are handled with upmost care.

Trendsetting in the UK

Some of our homegrown brands may not manufacture in Britain but have spotted a great opportunity to bring innovation into the UK. Businesses like Padeltech have helped to bring one of the world’s fastest-growing sports, Padel, to our shores.

And when getting active, wearing the right clothes is essential! Beta Outdoor Sports and Baxter Freight work together to bring high-quality brands from around the globe. As a full solution specialist, Baxter Freight can offer a range of routes and modes to ensure business is booming and supporting people getting active outdoors.
