Logistics Services

Efficient and cost effective supply chains are far more complex than moving goods from A to B. At Solstor we can provide the full range services needed to ensure your business flows are optimised to allow you to focus on growing the business while we focus on delivering your goods.

Our Network

Our experienced management team, with a diverse ranges of skills, languages and expertise, can support your supply chain operations throughout Europe. We work with companies big and small to add value in their supply chains by providing a range of services such as control tower network management, primary distribution, consolidation, cross docking, warehousing, customs, supply chain analysis and consultancy.

Control tower network management

We provide the infrastructure to seamlessly manage a network of transport movements offering the customer a single point of contact for all supply chain activity. In addition to managing the day to day operations and service performance management we provide periodic KPI data to allow us to jointly review past performance and future optimisation opportunities.

We currently provide this service to several customers where supply chains encompass collection and deliveries across multiple countries in the EU.

Primary distribution

Utilising our network of vehicles and warehousing we are able to provide primary distribution networks to efficiently manage the inbound movement of product into your distribution centres. We can consolidate and cross dock product to optimise loadfill of vehicles to minimise overall cost. We overlay a control tower to efficiently manage the transport movements of the network with the benefits detailed above.

We provide Primary Distribution services for major UK supermarkets collecting product from across the UK and Europe for delivery into Regional Distribution Centres.

Warehousing, consolidation and dross docking

Solstor works with a range of partners to provide warehousing services across the EU. These facilities can handle the range of chilled, frozen and ambient goods on both long and short term basis. Our warehouse near Dartford in the UK acts as a hub for product travelling in and out of the UK offering an important link in the UK import / export supply chain.

Warehousing is provided for a number of companies importing products into the UK. Our partner facilities across the EU are important components in our European groupage network.

Customs

We have provided transport services out of the EU for many years. Our partner network of customs agents allow us to deliver a one stop transport solution to handle all elements of the transport chain when trading outside the EU.

The recent Brexit environment has significantly increased the demands in this area and we have been working hard with numerous Government agencies and Trade Associations to ensure we have the knowledge to support our customers through this potentially challenging environment.

We are talking on a daily basis with many of our customers to work through processes to prepare for a possible Brexit situation, with a view to minimising the risks which could be presented by Brexit. 

Supply chain analysis and consultancy

Our experience and expertise can be utilised in many ways to review the wider supply chain to identify cost saving initiatives, recommend process improvements or advise on future industry changes so all parties can prepare together.

Our support has helped many companies review import / export arrangements with UK supply chains, assist procurement processes by identifying the cost to support sourcing from different geographic regions and deliver cost reductions by utilising consolidation and groupage solutions to cost effectively deliver less than full load quantities.
