Avanti Express logistics hub for UK distribution

October is the busiest month of the year for the Avanti Express logistics hub team and this October was the busiest ever. Many of Avanti's customers know about our great, customer focussed, delivery services but some won't be aware of our logistics hub based in Manchester. All of customers have access to the logistics hub services so I thought that it was about time I shared some details with you.

Every October we receive a delivery of 100,000 University Careers Directories on behalf of our customer Graduate Prospects, the UK’s leading provider of information, advice and opportunities to students and graduates. The directories are printed in the UK and delivered to Avanti's logistics hub by road haulage.

Graduate Prospects provides us with a list of Universities with the quantities of directories for each location. Our despatch team contacts every careers department at each individual university to arrange delivery times. The planners then work out delivery routes for maximum efficiency based on route planning, traffic and local knowledge of the location of the delivery point with respect to the closest parking bay.

Some pallets are delivered complete whilst others broken into sets of packs for delivery and labelled for collection by the drivers. 100,000 directories were delivered to 230 universities in 5 days and not a single delivery was late.

Mike Threlfall of Graduate Prospects said “We now have Avanti as our main distributor for our flagship product, Prospects Directory. Almost 100,000 copies are delivered to more than 230 University Career Services within the UK. I would not hesitate in recommending Avanti to anyone who wishes to get their products safe and sound to anywhere in the country.” 

Avanti Express provides a range of services such as the careers directories but more usually the logistics hub tends to specialise in furniture. On any given day there are carpets, reproduction leather sofas, doors, 3-piece suites, fire places, etc.

Some of our customers do not have sufficient space to accommodate their sales volume so the furniture is sent directly from the manufacturer to our logistics hub. When items arrive they can either follow a simple storage and delivery process or a more complex process designed in conjunction with the customer. Many of the items that are received as bulk packaged items are then unpacked and inspected for any signs of manufacturing defects or in-transit damage. Once they have passed inspection the items are repackaged for delivery to the end consumer.

Some warehouses have formal systems whereby picking lists and despatches are done at set times during the day. Avanti is very much a customer service focussed business and therefore we pick and despatch items at any time of the day or night in order to have it arrive with the end consumer at the agreed time whether that is local to the hub in Manchester or at the end of the country in Inverness or Plymouth.

Loading furniture into the delivery van is usually a two man exercise as are many of the deliveries. After a member of the despatch team has spoken to the end customer they will allocate the appropriate number of experienced delivery drivers to each item depending on it's size, value and the details of the delivery location.
