Food distribution is at the heart of what we do. To deliver the high quality service our customers expect every part of the business needs to run like a well oiled machine. Here’s how we do it…..
Take Pride in our Warehouse
Our large Hertfordshire warehouse includes 3000sqft of freezer space. The optimised layout means we have enough space to hold over 600 pallets of stock at any one time. Without fail the stores are organised, clean and tidy prompting high praise from all customers that visit us.
When our sales lines close at 4pm each day our dedicated warehouse team spring into life to carefully pick the orders. All deliveries are picked, checked, checked again and then loaded onto the vehicles ready for the next day’s rounds.
All our trucks have left the depot by 5am every morning ensuring the drivers get the deliveries to their destinations right when the customer needs them.
Our delivery routes are planned on a daily basis to be the most efficient geographical route possible in order to minimise our carbon footprint. In addition we operate split compartment vehicles enabling us to have frozen, chilled and ambient products out for delivery on the same vehicle.
Maintaining Our Fleet
Our reputation of reliability is something we strive to uphold. To make sure that our deliveries get there when we say they will, we renew all our vehicles every 5 years. Doing this minimizes breakdowns, and enables us to keep up to date with the best and most efficient vehicles on the market.
We are proud to say that, our entire fleet now meets the 2012 London Low Emission Zone standard.
