Kime Transport ensures fast turnaround of beds for NHS Pilgrim Hospital

Lincolnshire-based TPN Member George H Kime has delivered three loads of hospital beds to the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston.

Kimes responded to a direct request for help from Lincolnshire County Council .The 60 beds had been imported from Poland and Kime arranged for the containers to be delivered to its depot in Sleaford. From there it devanned the beds, reloaded them to trailers and delivered all 60 to the Pilgrim Hospital.

“Requests for NHS movements are naturally often urgent, and we pull out all the stops to ensure everything gets delivered exactly when it’s needed and when it’s expected,” says MD Nigel Kime. “It may sound like a small thing but hospital staff are stretched at the moment and having beds available when you need them is huge to the staff and patients involved.”

Kimes has consistently invested in its vehicle fleet, and last built a £1m extension to its Sleaford depot. It also has a new site in development in Lincoln, as well as its premises in Wrangle, Bicker and Witham St Hughs.

“We have expertise in container work, haulage, and of course, first class palletised freight distribution,” says Nigel. “And we have warehousing available all over the Lincolnshire area. When customers are ready to ramp up their businesses, we’re ready to support them.”
