Kerry Logistics delivers socks to health professionals
Kerry Logistics has donated its services to deliver 5,000 pairs of compression socks, given by Glasgow-based online travel retailer Trtl, to frontline health professionals across Scotland. The compression socks were originally designed for passengers on long haul-flights, will help acute nurses in six hospitals across Scotland fight fatigue as they face 12-hour shifts on their feet.
Allison Milligan, supply chain & logistics lead, Trtl, said: "The relationship between Trtl and Kerry Logistics is very new and still developing, however when I contacted them to enquire if they could deliver the socks to the hospitals, they not only agreed but offered to deliver to all sites free of charge, a very generous offer."
With only a few hours’ notice they collected and delivered to Dundee, Aberdeen, and Edinburgh, all in one day. (mw)
