WHEN time and money are critical it pays to work with a team who not only specialise in warehousing and logistics but care about a client's reputation.
This commitment has made all the difference to the ongoing success of Stephen Sanderson Transport, a family-owned haulage company which has extensive warehousing in Corby. The business, named Haulier of the Year in the Motor Transport Awards 2018, moved its warehouse operation to the town in 2015 to enable the team to expand and grow this exciting service to its operation.
Through its connections with Palletline the company is a preferred Amazon supplier; this, along with many other services, means there has been growing demand for the warehousing initially located on the town's Causeway Road; the company has recently acquired a further 60,000 square feet of warehousing on Sallow Road in Corby.
Commercial Director Ed Sanderson works closely with brother Chris, who is the Operations Director and their father Stephen, Managing Director, who set up the company in Market Harborough in 1973.
"The warehousing side of the business has been another opportunity for us to expand," said Ed. "But, while we have an extensive operation, we still have a very hands-on approach, which is good for us and good for our customers.
"We can make quick decisions and offer bespoke solutions to our customers. It is important to us that we offer practical, joined-up thinking to ensure a seamless process that delivers on time, on budget every time. We are very proud to be able to deliver an outstanding customer experience."
Warehouse manager Mathew Buttar heads up the experienced team based at Corby, where the company takes pride in meeting almost any storage requirement.
Mathew said: "We offer a full range of warehousing services from de-vanning containers through to fast pace re-work and the ever-growing e-fulfilment services. Having our two sites in Corby allows us to be flexible; one being a high-bay racked facility and one being a bulk store facility - we can offer a range of options to any interested client."
Like many logistics companies, Sanderson has found Brexit has put the warehousing services under even greater demand with the team talking to customers about options including storing stock or offering logistics solutions. Ongoing investment in technology means customers can track shipments and even integrate this into the client's own systems.
"Each customer is different, so it is important that we listen to them. Our teams then have the expertise, vision and commitment to make things happen," said Mathew.
