One of our clients, a well-known UK retail brand, is seeking a transport partner to undertake store deliveries to 80+ nationwide retail outlets from their National Distribution Centre in Burton upon Trent.

The operation is 95% roll-cage based with the further 5% being delivered on a combination of pallets, totes and dollies. Deliveries can be made predominantly on double-deck trailers with the use of standard trailers where double-deck cannot be accommodated. Stores are serviced 7 days of the week with a blend of daytime and night time deliveries.

In terms of seasonality February to May are considered the low season with volumes then steadily increasing from June to August and peak season ramping up through September to November. Volumes tend to be relatively low in December and early January but there is a further peak at the end of January in preparation for Easter.

This is a great opportunity to work with a growing and well known UK retailer. The Invitation to Tender will be issued on Wednesday 20th January with responses due by Tuesday 9th February.

If you are interested in tendering for this opportunity, please provide your company and contact details to [email protected] with the reference ‘UK Retail Contract’.

Once we have your details we will contact you with a Non-Disclosure Agreement prior to discussing the client requirements further and issuing the Invitation to Tender.
