Logistics and Warehousing solutions to help with your COVID-19 recovery
Our category experts explain a range of solutions we're providing and how you can take advantage.
The current pandemic has increased pressure on frontline services with many local authorities, NHS trusts and blue light organisations struggling to meet increased demands for commodities and equipment required to support the COVID-19 response.
This is proving to be a significant challenge for many organisations where contingency stocks need to be stored and distributed locally in order to meet urgent, uncertain and varying demand from the communities they serve.
How we’re supporting you
Our Logistics and Warehousing framework is already helping significantly with storage and distribution requirements of organisations like yours providing a range of solutions. These include:
- test kits
- medical equipment
- critical commodities
that are required to support both regional and national COVID-19 recovery.
The solutions available cover a broad spectrum from ad-hoc short term storage to longer term warehousing provision including temperature controlled environments, MRHA and GDP compliant storage and agile supply chain logistics.
A framework for fast, efficient and effective procurement
Framework agreements are increasingly becoming the desired route to market offering compliant, cost effective and rapid procurements underpinned by the Public Sector Contract (PSC). This is even more critical at this unprecedented time when councils have enormous pressure placed upon in-house resources.
Our pre-evaluated framework suppliers that include regional and national SMEs together with larger global companies offer a wide range of innovative products and services. These can be tailored to meet your specific and local needs.
We also provide a tried and tested way for organisations to reach out to the market in order to determine the best solutions. Our category teams are here to offer support and guidance around market capabilities, effective pricing structures and standardised contract terms.
Social value matters
In addition we place social value at the heart of our agreements and this first ever Logistics and Warehousing framework can really deliver on key benefits such as:
- COVID-19 recovery achieved by local PPE storage and distribution
- regional employment growth through recruitment and business opportunities
- supply chain resilience delivered by our SMEs through collaboration
- a clear roadmap to tangible delivery of environmentally sustainable and Carbon Net Zero logistical solutions
