The most important trends shaping today’s world economy – globalisation, the rapid growth of emerging markets, and the pace of technological development driven by engineering and manufacturing (E&M) businesses. Industrial logistics for a business essentially consists of outsourcing logistic activities to ensure a more efficient supply chain.
Our logistics services help to manage material and resource flow within a company which in turn pertains to production. Whether these companies focus on the extraction and transportation and final delivery of raw materials, production of high-tech and industrial manufacturing equipment, construction of advanced buildings, or sophisticated air, sea, and rail transportation solutions strong supply chains are key.

Real-time logistics solutions can provide your company with the right balance between quality, cost, flexibility and standardisation. Allowing you to be better prepared when facing the challenges in the industrial market that are commonly underpinned by regulatory demands.
We don’t just work within the engineering and logistics sector we also provide industry-specific logistic solutions to a wide range of sectors, including effective waste logistics management, retail and fashion transport solutions, the distribution of manufactured goods and much more.
In 2012, engineering sectors contributed £387 billion Gross Value Added (GVA) – a similar scale to the entire non-financial services industry (£505 billion) and nearly four times the combined size of the construction and real estate services sectors (£105 billion). The GVA of engineering sectors is estimated to have risen to £406.3 billion in 2014, which is equivalent to an estimated Gross Domestic Product (GDP) contribution of £455.6 billion, 27.1% of total UK GDP. Based on the potential employment projections of Engineering and nominal growth in output per employee averaging 3% each year, by 2022 this contribution is expected to increase to £542.2 billion in GVA and £608.1 billion in GDP
