UK: flexibility sustains NHS supply chain
While transport and distribution businesses across the UK are doing all they can to support those working on the medical frontline during the crisis, Dachser is proving its flexibility of service.
Its Dartford branch has been providing Alsico, a manufacturer and distributor of workplace clothing, with regular transportation services between its factories in North Africa and its main UK distribution centre in Preston since 2013.
The Covid-19 pandemic’s effect on demand and government restrictions in various countries meant that Alsico had to find new manufacturers of its products based in Europe. Dachser rose to the challenge and, by using its extensive operational network across Europe, quickly adjusted to ensure swift delivery of the essential supplies. (ben)
