EV Cargo Global Forwarding is reporting volumes at similar levels to Christmas as the UK experiences a significant spike in consumer spending across the grocery sector. The company is working with subcontractors and other hauliers to help deliver increased volumes while liaising closely with customers – many of which have relaxed timed-slot restrictions.
This week a call from EV Cargo Global Forwarding business Jigsaw for hauliers with spare capacity generated over 150 responses in just 48 hours, and CM Downton has moved driver and vehicle resource from manufacturing-based customers to food and drink.
为确保其在此期间有能力交付，EV Cargo 实施了其全面的业务连续性计划，包括将规划团队拆分到多个仓库，将员工团队隔离，以及通过增强健康和安全程序支持同事。
Duncan Eyre, EV Cargo Global Forwarding chief executive said: “Driven by the increased demand for groceries created by the likelihood of an extended COVID-19 lock-down, our current food and beverage volumes are at Christmas levels. We’re working closely with other quieter hauliers and traction providers to manage the situation and there’s a different atmosphere across the industry – a real spirit of everyone cooperating and collaborating to ensure the shelves stay full. Our grocery customers have relaxed delivery slot restrictions and are working closely with us to manage volumes.”
