Davies Turner to increase capacity
Davies Turner offers solutions to manage supply chains hit by Covid-19 challenges. Davies Turner chairman Philip Stephenson says that Davies Turner Ltd, the group's surface freight subsidiary, continues to operate services and logistics operations as near to normal as possible.
"We have now recommenced our direct express China rail service, which offers a door-to-door transit time of between 20 and 24 days, and is the only direct rail service for groupage as well as full loads into the UK."
And he adds: "We are also reconfiguring some of our logistics warehouses to increase capacity and make available a greater number of pallet positions for customers with stock that has been imported, but is not required by end-users at the moment. For example, this has created several thousand more pallet slots at our Dartford Distribution Centre for anyone with an urgent requirement for additional storage in their supply chain."
Davies Turner planned to celebrate its 150th anniversary in June, but that has fallen victim to the effect of the virus, so the party will be deferred into next year. (mw)
