3PLs set to provide ongoing support as businesses re-open

Third-party logistics providers are pivotal in ensuring the movement of goods is seamless as businesses re-open.

The last three months have been challenging for businesses across the country with many having to adapt their ways of working, including how they integrate their products into the supply chain.

During this time, it has become particularly evident that competent and efficient third-party logistics providers are pivotal in ensuring the movement of goods is seamless. One such business, Carlton Forest 3PL, has seen demand grow even more during this period and a further warehouse acquisition has been made to facilitate the needs of new and existing customers.

“Many customers have seen an increase in demand for products ranging from essential food and drink supplies, to significant growth for those who operate in the e-commerce sector,” said Alistair Plant, divisional operations manager, Carlton Forest 3PL. “We excel at developing bespoke solutions to support businesses with their individual requirements and we can adapt as required to help with current and future business needs.”

Over half a million sq ft of warehousing is available between three sites all of which are based at the heart of the Sheffield City Region and the motorway network. A mixture of bulk and racked storage and approximately 60,000 pallet locations is available.

“Each of our sites is able to offer all third-party logistics solutions including fulfilment solutions, ecommerce operations, warehousing, storage, container de-vanning, crossdocking, contract packing, national distribution, WMS and stock control,” said Alistair. “This gives us the ability to diversify to suit each and every customer and this is why customers choose us as their preferred third-party logistics provider.”

Carlton Forest has over half a million sq ft of warehousing space across three sites in Worksop, Barnsley and Hellaby. The company offers a full range of warehousing and logistics services including contract warehousing, contract packing, national distribution, WMS and stock control and bespoke fulfilment solutions.
