Hospitality has been one industry hit hard by the national lockdowns across the UK. With various restrictions including total closure, partial closure, operating solely to outdoor patrons or operating solely as a takeaway, the UK’s restaurants and eateries have faced numerous challenges across the last 12 months. The ‘roadmap’ for Britain’s reopening was revealed by the UK government. A date of 12th April was outlined by the Prime Minister as a point by which he hoped the UK’s hospitality industry would return to a degree of normal function; serving food and drinks outdoors.
So, what does this mean for the UK’s hospitality industry? In short – it’s time to plan! Many restaurants across the UK were required to close their doors, and for lots of business this additionally meant cutting costs where possible. Closing contracts with logistics suppliers was a logical step for many restaurants, which means in the light of reopening that it is time to consider your supply chain needs.
Preparing for a national reopening means that considering your logistics is essential. After so long closed, it is time to consider your courier needs. Speedy Freight has decades of experience when it comes to supporting the hospitality industry with specialised courier services, including same-day, next-day and refrigerated vehicles. With access to a fleet of over 4,000 vehicles, Speedy Freight is perfectly placed to deliver not only smaller supplies but bulk food and beverage supplies to restaurants across the country.
Our dedicated driver service means that our transportation of all hospitality consignments are the fastest in the industry – simply by virtue of the fact that we’ll never co-load our vehicles with more than one clients’ goods at the same time. This means that our clients know their items are moving directly from A to B, and won’t be making any stops along the way. In addition to being the most efficient way we’ve found to transport your goods, this also helps to ensure food and beverages are as fresh as possible when we make your delivery.
In addition, Speedy Freight helps to support your restaurant or bar all year round – no matter what day (or time of day!) you need logistics support. Our service isn’t 9-5, Monday to Friday, because yours isn’t – and instead we operate throughout nights and weekends to ensure that all of our clients enjoy Speedy’s five-star service. Operating on public holidays including Christmas and New Year means Speedy is the partner of choice for many hospitality organisations across the UK. Happy to act as your scheduled logistics supplier or to pick up one-off events, Speedy Freight has the decades of experience to back up our word.
