How to get your logistics schedule organised this Cyber Monday
There are several things to think about when planning your logistics for Cyber Monday. Here’s what you should have on your checklist:
Do I need a courier to collect consignments from our suppliers and deliver them to our depot or warehouse?
Do I need support with collection from our manufacturers and delivery to our depots/warehouses?
Do I need a collection and delivery solution for stock replenishments?
Do I need collection and courier delivery support for imports?
Do I need courier delivery support to distribute to customers?
Do I need additional vehicles or driver cover for Cyber Monday to deliver to retailers or homes?
Do I have the storage capacity to manage inventory levels?
If you answered yes to any - or even all of these questions - Speedy Freight can help you coordinate your Cyber Monday logistics operation to meet demand.
Dedicated courier delivery (and collection) for Cyber Monday
On a day as busy as Cyber Monday, your business logistics need to be flawless. That’s why we offer totally dedicated drivers and vehicles to collect and deliver your consignments only. While shared courier services can help to cut costs, collection and delivery of your goods is at the mercy of how many other consignments those shared courier services are carrying.
With Speedy Freight, there’s no such problem. We can collect and deliver, in most cases on the same day, to ensure your logistics requirements run smoothly. Whether we’re collecting from suppliers or manufacturers, picking up imports from ports or delivering direct to customers, you get dedicated courier delivery services.
Cyber Monday driver cover
If you have your own in-house courier crew and vehicle fleet, but you reckon it’s not going to be enough to cover Cyber Monday demand, never fear Speedy Freight is here.
We understand that internal courier crews can get stretched during peak season. Your drivers and vehicles might well be here, there and everywhere. That’s where we can offer backup.
Whether you’re down a driver because of sickness or annual leave, or you’ve been let down by another courier at the last minute, we can provide drivers and vehicles when you need them most. If you anticipate being short ahead of Cyber Monday, you can even arrange driver cover in advance with us.
Offering truck drivers, van drivers, motorbike couriers and more, when you need cover, we can deliver. We can have drivers serve you at full or half day rates.
The same applies if you’re a haulage company struggling to meet delivery demands. We can provide drivers and vehicles to support your fleet for as long as you need them.
Import and export
If you are importing or exporting ahead of Cyber Monday, our courier delivery service offers a solution that will get your business consignments where they need to be, fast. We can collect from shipping ports and airfields in the UK, delivering direct to your depot or warehouse, giving you complete peace of mind that you have the supplies and stock you need for Cyber Monday.
Equally, if you need to ship consignments to overseas branches of your business or direct to customers, we can provide the courier delivery support you need. Our dedicated export management service supports you, from export declarations, to transporting consignments ready for shipping.
Cyber Monday can stretch your storage capacity to the limit, and it might be the case that you run out of warehouse space to receive inventory. We have more than 100,000 square feet of warehouse space available to keep your stock secure and manageable. Plus, we provide pick and pack services to support distribution.
Utilising innovative warehouse management systems – road haulage solutions, freight forwarding and more, our warehousing services are uniquely designed to keep your consignments flowing through the supply chain.
Nationwide and international coverage
We are a national and international courier delivery service with a local feel. With more than 60 branches located across the UK and Europe - including Spain - we are strategically positioned to support every aspect of your Cyber Monday logistics requirements.
With a fleet of more than 4,000 vehicles on the road - including specialist vehicles - we can collect and deliver anything.
Everything you need for Cyber Monday logistics in one place
A courier delivery service that gives you everything you need all in one place to manage your logistics requirements prevents your supply chain from becoming dysfunctional.
Rather than having to rely on several courier services to coordinate your Cyber Monday logistics, which can increase costs and the risk of errors, working with one courier delivery solution makes managing your collection and delivery schedules so much easier.
Whether you need us for half a day or you need end-to-end logistics this Cyber Monday and beyond, we are equipped to support your requirements.
