Moving Bricks and Tiles: A Construction Delivery Case Study

Moving Bricks and Tiles: A Construction Delivery Case Study
Effective construction logistics is imperative to a successful construction project. Construction site managers are always under pressure to keep costs low and get jobs completed ahead of schedule. If you’re struggling to meet demands or if you’ve ever found yourself in need of an express delivery of materials, a same construction courier could be the solution you need. In this case study, we look at how we handle the delivery of construction consignments such as bricks and tiles for a leading UK building materials company.


The Client


Our client is a building materials company, providing a range of products such as bricks, tiles, aggregate, fencing, decking, and plasterboard.

As a leader in the supply of construction materials, they have a nationwide presence and network, helping their customers with their projects by offering a wide array of building materials, providing tool hire, and professional guidance on their projects.


The Consignment


With a varied range of products and services, our client was looking for a courier service with an equally diverse range of services adept at delivering specialised construction consignments.

Our client reached out to our Speedy Freight Walsall team, an experienced same day construction courier based in Walsall, to deliver a range of items to their customers.

Our first delivery for them was pallets of bricks, which we’ve since done repeatedly. We’ve moved all types of items for our client, including bricks, tiles, timber, tools, and other building materials, thanks to our range of services and vehicles.

With access to a fleet of over 4,000 vehicles, including specialist vehicles such as hi-abs and moffetts, we’ve met our client’s delivery needs with ease, always ready to take on the next delivery request they send our way.


The Solution


Our Speedy Freight Walsall team offer a dedicated same day courier service and have a wealth of experience delivering construction consignments for building materials and tool hire companies operating within the construction industry.

When moving building materials, careful handling due to their size and weight is necessary. A dedicated courier service is the best way to ensure your materials are being handled securely, and not stored with any other consignments on the delivery vehicle that could result in damage or delays.

Our drivers are experienced when it comes to delivering to construction sites, which can be challenging to navigate, and often have entry and vehicle size restrictions. Thankfully, our resourceful teams and drivers are adaptable and flexible, offering transport solutions no matter where you need your goods delivered.

With our two-man delivery service, and varied range of fleet to meet construction delivery needs, we’ve met and our client’s every need. When consignments are heavy, bulky, or even oversized, as is the case with this client, our delivery crews are always on hand to carefully handle and deliver all your goods safely and securely.

Since our initial job booking, we’ve done several repeat jobs for our client, who has been consistently impressed by Speedy Freight’s speed, efficiency, reliability, and expertise.

Thanks to Speedy Freight’s varied fleet, 24-hour availability, and experience with construction deliveries, a longstanding relationship was established, with Speedy Freight as the client’s same day courier service of choice for construction deliveries.
