EFM assisting in the fight against the COVID 19 Pandemic

Jun 2, 2021

EFM Distribution are proud to announce that they are working in conjunction with Clipper PLC to deliver vital PPE to key workers during the pandemic.

Clipper Logistics PLC, a leading supplier of value-added logistics solutions, e fulfilment, and returns management services, rapidly mobilised its warehousing and fulfilment operation in Crick, Northamptonshire. From start to finish, mobilisation of the solution took five days, including setting up a full warehouse management system for over 200,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space.

Steve Parkin, Executive Chairman at Clipper commented: “These are unprecedented times, and the support we have received from NHS Supply Chain, Unipart and 101 Logistic Brigade has been outstanding, and has enabled us to create a truly collaborative solution as a result. The solution has required tremendous flexibility and a shared sense of purpose and support in these challenging times. I’d like to personally thank all of our colleagues for their dedication and support in these unusual and difficult circumstances. We are all pleased to be able to support the NHS in a critical time for the country, helping NHS staff operate safely whilst caring for those in need.”

As the preferred carrier for all of the palletised goods, EFM Distribution are proud to have also played an integral part in the fight against COVID 19 and keeping key workers safe, on average shipping approximately 800 pallets per day across the nation to care homes, dentists, border force agencies and other NHS sites.

Craig Minney, Operations Manager at EFM commented: “The contract has been a huge logistical challenge to implement in a very short space of time for our operation. It has meant long hours and having to increase our number of staff to cope with the volume of work. However, it is a fantastic project to be involved in and we are glad that we could do our bit to assist”
