TWE Haulage expands its service for any customer in need of rapid logistics
Banbury-based TPN Member TWE Haulage is servicing hospitals in London and Oxfordshire for existing and new clients, having to adapt to much higher volumes and urgent need, says commercial director Ross Edden.
The company, which provides a full logistics service, has been delivering PPE into the ExCel-based Nightingale Hospital on behalf of long-term customer Montgomery Transport. They have also distributed PPE to the emergency services base established at a former USA military base at Upper Hayford, Oxfordshire.
One local customer supplies Siemens Medical, and loads to this premises have increased from two a week to several a day, which is challenging for the fleet. “As the logistics provider we have to react to what customers need when they need it,” says Ross. “It’s all down to what can be produced by the factory, and we have to react, with trailers waiting for the goods, to make sure no delay occurs.”
“And of course, we are also servicing other customers, including supermarkets,” says Ross. “It may not be as high profile as the NHS, but making sure that food is delivered to the Morrisons at Bridgewater so it remains well stocked for consumers is also pretty vital.
“I am proud that TWE is offering our support to all who need it, whether that be an existing customer, new customers or competitor logistics companies who require more resource,” says Ross. “We must all work together to make sure we come out the other side. And when we do emerge from this, hopefully our industry will be appreciated for its critical role.”
