The freight transport sector is as tough as it’s ever been for businesses to navigate and engage with, and with transport and shipping becoming THE biggest out cost to many manufactures, never has there been a time where procurement and delivery planning HAVE to get it right to maximise vehicle options, minimise supply chain risks, mitigate transport supply issues and secure best value.
With many manufactures abandoning traditional own fleet transport models during the pandemic and through driver shortages and customs issues, businesses are engaging outsourced supply chain management companies such as Freight Logistics Solutions to deliver all their freight needs.
Freight Logistics Solutions is a leading UK digital freight forwarder, specialising in dedicated domestic and European road shipments. The business has access to 50,000 vehicles, through our network of over 7000 suppliers, enabling our account managers to utilise this scale to offer competitive pricing, maximising vehicle options and deliver quick turnarounds, when our clients need it the most.
The FLS technology platform expedites short notice requests with our team having the ability to instantly interact with our carriers who share their locations, availability, and reactions to FLS digital load fulfilment requests, ultimately providing instant matching of our client’s requirements to quality controlled FLS carriers availability and locations.
For businesses with small to large volume usage, we understand that while we support planned and future movements, there will also be the short notice, or unplannable requests that are business critical, and that’s when we leverage our capacity and technology to offer quick access to vehicles at competitive pricing to our customers.
FLS have a team of dedicated transport planners, working tirelessly to continue to grow and manage our carrier resource of vehicles across the UK and Europe. These carriers are aligned to FLS technology enabling our planners to have full visibility of their status and interact digitally, giving them the ability to provide best proximity, best pricing, best availability, and minimised empty mileage for client and carrier and the environment.
FLS account managers are a service driven team and fully backed with industry leading vehicle numbers developed from our planners. The planning department enable our account managers not only to focus on acting quickly with competitive pricing when needed but to focus on providing excellent customer service, from key status updates from when the vehicle is arriving for collection, to loading times, delivery ETAs, and when the goods are unloaded.
For any imports and exports FLS have an inhouse customs team that react alongside our international account managers to ensure while we arrange the vehicle for last minute movements, we can also support customs and transit requirements to avoid any unnecessary delays.
If you have got last minute or unexpected movements to ship within UK or Europe, then FLS is the solution.
Contact our team if you would like to know how we could support or arrange any requirements you have.
