Head of Finance and Operations
We have worked with Supply Chain for over two years now. Supermarket logistics can be quite testing especially during peak periods and when dealing with delays at RDC’s. We benefitted by working with Supply Chain Solutions as they removed virtually all demurrage costs whilst improving performance to the customer by using their expertise and knowledge of the delivery points to the benefit of all parties.
On occasions where we had damaged product on products we supplied directly ourselves to customers, they provided a regional solution to repack, restack and redeliver. This facility was a game changer for us as we reduced wasted mileage costs as well as minimising damages by tackling the problem closer to the delivery point as opposed to transporting back to the port. The products would be repacked with specialist's which reduced the turnaround time and improved the success rate on the redelivery of the reworked product reducing costs further.
Overall a proactive and innovative business solution for deliveries to Lidl and our other customers which we are happy to thoroughly recommend.

SCS Limited recently managed the haulage (collection from our factory plus the onward timed deliveries) for a large promotion we had with Aldi UK and Ireland. The service they provided was first class. The collection and deliveries were conducted as requested, proofs of delivery were provided complete and on time, and the subsequent associated invoicing was clear and correct. I will certainly be considering SCS Limited again for handling haulage of our onward promotions into next year.
Global Business Frontiers Ltd
Supply Chain Director Les Wright has been instrumental in providing logistical solutions to Global Business Frontiers UK Ltd for shipping by SEA and AIR FREIGHT our frozen perishables to the Middle East and African markets. Their combination of UK frozen storage, in house Defra approved vet, temperature controlled transport and airport packing facilities for frozen foods made the whole process seamless. All necessary documents where checked and copies of the AWB were sent to us prior to flight departure. This allowed our clients to prepare the customs clearance and local transport at destination ahead of time. “Supply Chain” set up a logistics process which allowed us to export our foodstuffs to Dakar Senegal. They took us under their wing and created the opportunity for us to send approx. 10 full pallets per month to Dakar and our business is increasing in the region. We are proud to have them as our logistics partner.

It was such a pleasant experience to find a company that can opperate without boundaries to customer care and succesfully perform each time. i will be recomending your company to my colleagues for chilled airfreight service.
Through their Temperature Controlled Airfreight Services, Supply Chain saw through the logistics process which enabled us to get our boxed samples of chocolates & cakes to arrive in perfect condition to both Canada and UAE respectively. Their attention to detail and advise was invaluable, and we are hoping that these chilled and frozen samples turn into full load orders. Thoroughly recommended.

Vitaflo International Ltd
We are a global supplier of both ambient and temperature controlled food enrichment products. Over many years we have used the servies of Supply Chain, who have offered us airfreight and roadfreight services. Over the Christmas period 2011 we were unable to secure transport from our suppliers in Europe and Supply Chain stepped in at short notice and delivered to us on Christmas Eve 2011. They informed us every step of the way and even organised a specific time convenient to us to get tipped. All in all an excellent service at rates we were more than happy with.

On the 9th March 2012, Les was kind enough to meet me to discuss how Supply Chain Solutions Ltd are collaborating with other companies within the logistics sector. Collaboration in the logistics industry is the subject of my PhD and it was very interesting to hear exactly how a company in the logistics industry use collaboration to serve the customers needs and requirements. Les provided detailed information on a number of examples of collaborations that Supply Chain Solutions Ltd are involved in and the performance benefits of these types of collaboration, which will allow me to broaden my study. Previous to this Les has also completed a number of questionnaires on the subject of collaboration for the University.
I am very grateful for his help!
