Helping businesses ‘Build for Brexit’

Flexibility has been business critical this year to many businesses across the region and having the ability to adapt to seemingly ever-changing circumstances has been key to success.

With Brexit placing increased pressure on businesses to maintain supply chain efficiencies, reducing supply chain miles and maximising efficiencies from third party providers has allowed businesses to flex their operations and stock demands, navigating the pandemic and now ‘Building or Brexit’.

We have seen our client base evolve in recent months attracting many blue chip companies for its efficient services and ability to ‘switch-on’ warehouse space and solutions due to its flexible and diverse warehouse portfolio.

“We’ve built a business model that has allowed us support a wide range of businesses ranging from large blue chips to smaller ecommerce retailers that have needed to seek independent warehousing and distribution channels,” said Diane Ward, Group Operations Director, Carlton Forest Group. “This way of working is proving to be hugely successful for many of our customers now and, despite a significant uplift in demand, we are still able to provide short and long term solutions for any new customers who are ‘Building for Brexit’ or merely wish to overhaul their warehousing and logistics strategy to deliver greater efficiencies.”

We currently operates our multi-faceted logistics solutions from three warehouses – one based in Hellaby, next to the M18/M1; one in Worksop, just two miles from the A1, and the third in Barnsley which also sits close to the main North/South M1. We have 600,000 sq ft but have access to additional warehousing in similar locations as required.

“A poll by UKWA earlier this year saw 90% of respondents state that even then their warehouses were all ready full as a result of stockpiling to protect core business operations ahead of Brexit,” said Diane. “That’s great for those that were operating in non-date specific products, or had the financial capacity to plan ahead so far in advance. However ,for those who are now looking for solutions, or benefitting from unexpected increases in demand attributed to the pandemic and a shift in consumer buying habits, the team at Carlton Forest are well placed to provide adaptable solutions in a timely, professional manner.”
