Speedy Freight case studies


Client: Hotel

Items Couriered: Pillows

Task: Transportation Of Soft Furnishings

425,000 pillows, 1600 deliveries (and collections), 800 stores covered, and in excess of 20,000 miles covered, spanning the entire mainland of the UK. From conception right through to the final pillow, this project saw Speedy Freight managing the whole distribution operation through 6 regional hubs. Speedy Freight were responsible for managing the stock levels on each site and reacting immediately where necessary if stock was delayed arriving into the UK.


Action Taken By Speedy Freight:

The logistics team received the final instructions on the Thursday afternoon before the Easter Bank holiday weekend. They had the full proposal (including costings, delivery date and time for each hotel) back to the hotel by 09.00 on the Tuesday morning, ready to go live later that week. There were hurdles along the way (due to delayed manufacture of the product) but, as a driving service, Speedy Freight are always prepared for bumps in the road! Speedy Freight showed their flexibility by managing the delay situation and re-planning the hotels, to coincide with the arrival of the pillows into the UK.


With the goods delivered on time and in budget, this project was another great success demonstrating the flexibility of the services we at Speedy Freight have to offer.
