Rounding up 2020 - what a year for UK Pick and Pack

Rounding up 2020 - what a year for UK Pick and Pack

December 15, 2020

2020 has not exactly been the year we were expecting.   Preparations for Brexit meant storage space became more of a premium, we were pretty certain that would be the shape of 2020 and the year certainly started along those lines.  We scaled up our facilities and offering and began bringing in more goods for our clients (existing and new).

February hit the country like a freight train. Covid-19, furloughs, lockdowns, and more, rapidly changing the world.

At the beginning of the Covid-19 Pandemic, our Business Continuity Plan kicked into action. When the pandemic started to spread, our Compliance Department implemented robust systems of hygiene to ensure the welfare and safe working procedures of all staff at all times.Parcel Delivery Pick Pack London Sussex

We lost zero working days and saw no delay in the despatch of orders due to the implementation of our plan whilst maintaining a safe and Covid-Secure facility for our staff.

In March, Logistics and Warehousing companies were designated as critical businesses and our staff as Key Workers.

On 23rd March, when the full lockdown was announced, we were able to seamlessly transition our office staff to home-based working whilst still maintaining our full service offering to customers. Staff who remained within the building remained working to the high standards our customers required whist ensuring a safe working environment.

As lockdown eased and guidance was updated, we implemented a full Covid Secure Risk Assessment and working procedures that continue to be adhered to today, and will be for the foreseeable future.

We have been able to bring office staff back onto site in a safe and controlled manner whilst ensuring that there has been no service interruption for customers throughout the entire period.

Of course, November's lockdown came and went and the tier system is currently demanding continued tweaks and changes.

We're grateful to our team, our partners, and our clients for adapting so well to what 2020 has brought to us all and really look forward to continued growth, development and some more steps back towards normality in 2021.
