Davies Turner has handled the shipment of a large consignment of products donated by Hunter Boot Ltd for the London Ambulance Service.
The consignment consisted of 25 pallets of the progressive British heritage brand’s iconic Women’s Original Tall wellingtons, which the manufacturer has donated to the London Ambulance Service, supporting the protection of its staff in the fight against COVID-19.
Hunter Boot recently appointed Davies Turner as its UK logistics partner to handle all inbound freight forwarding of products into the UK, plus warehousing, as well as pick and pack operations, and subsequent national and European distribution.
The UK’s leading independent freight forwarding and logistics company will be using its recently purpose-built state-of-the-art regional and national logistics centre at Avonmouth, near Bristol, to hold stock and deliver fulfilment services for Hunter Boot’s products.
Davies Turner will manage all international movements across all transport modes, including supplier management via its own bespoke Purchase Order to Delivery (P2D) system; Customs management and consultancy including classification, as well as UK B2B and B2C logistics including customer returns.
Alan Williams, director of Davies Turner said: “We’ve recently won this contract, so this urgent and special delivery to London’s Ambulance Service was the perfect opportunity to demonstrate, for such a valuable cause, that our actions could speak as loudly as the words and commitments in our service contract.”
Davies Turner’s specialist logistics fulfilment team at its logistics centre in Central Park, Bristol worked quickly to pick and pack wellington boots of various sizes ready for transportation on one of the company’s vehicle fleet that provides overnight feeder services between its hubs in the UK, as well as deliveries nationwide.
