That means that whether you have one delivery or multiple, you know that the only stops on the way will be yours. Discover how we handled the last-minute multi-drop delivery needs of a company in the construction sector.

The Client 

 

Our client is a specialist rental company servicing the construction industry. They specialise in providing temporary formwork and falsework rentals for concrete construction. As a key supplier of these materials, they work with businesses across the UK in the construction sector. 

As a highly specialised company dealing with rentals of large and heavy goods to construction sites across the UK, their delivery needs are quite unique, and the locations for delivery can vary greatly. 

Our client contacted our Speedy Freight Romford team with an urgent last-minute delivery need to deliver construction materials to a building site.  

As an express and same day Romford courier with significant experience in the construction industry, they sought out our expertise to help them manage unforeseen delivery needs that required a quick, efficient, and reliable courier service.  

 

The Challenges 

 

Our client first contacted us with a same day delivery request. While they operate their own fleet and often deliver to their customers’ sites directly, running their own fleet was too expensive, and they were wasting resources driving back empty. While Speedy Freight offer end-to-end business logistics, we can also help support businesses with any extra logistics needs, with our service offerings from express courier services to driver cover. 

With Speedy Freight you only pay one way, so we were able to offer a cost-effective solution that allowed them to save valuable time and money. 

Their limited access to vehicles and challenges with managing last-minute needs led them to seek out Speedy Freight’s same day courier service. We received many requests from our client, including last-minute specialist vehicle needs, as well as pick-ups and drop-offs in very remote areas that were difficult to access. 

Our Speedy Freight Romford team was quick to talk through their needs, book the proper vehicle for the job, and get on the road. We always aim to pick up our client’s consignments within 60 minutes of booking, and doing so was a key to our success in getting our client’s consignments delivered on time. 

 

The Consignment 

 

After the first successful completion of a job for our client, we were contacted by them on several occasions with requests outside of regular business hours. As Speedy Freight operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we were able to meet all their last-minute after-hours delivery requests. 

We delivered a range of building materials for them. On our busiest days, they would book a multi-drop delivery to five different locations. Some of the items we delivered include steel and aluminum falsework, panel falsework, bespoke wall formwork, and façade retentions & shoring.  

While most of the jobs we completed for them required vans of various sizes, the bigger jobs required up to 18 tonne trucks due to the size of the consignments.

 

The Conclusion 

 

Our client expressed their appreciation for our fast response, ‘can-do’ attitude and our ability to say yes to all deliveries they come to us with.  

When it came to both advanced and last-minute multi-drop same day deliveries, we were quick to get the vehicles they needed, sometimes even providing more than one delivery vehicle for each delivery.  

When faced with an issue or an emergency request, we proposed quick transport solutions to meet their unique business needs.  

What began as an inquiry into how Speedy Freight could help with an urgent same day delivery request developed into us offering support for their business delivery needs that they couldn’t cover with their own resources.
