Streamlined delivery system

The company produces approximately 3,000 vehicles each year, across both its Coventry and Shanghai facilities with as many as 18 containers of automotive parts arriving from China on a weekly basis. The containers shipped over from China were not compatible with the loading bay configuration in Coventry, meaning that the container needed to be unloaded on arrival in the port at Felixstowe, and then reloaded into a suitable curtain-sided trailer for delivery to the UK plant. The bespoke platforms enable the same container to be loaded in China and unloaded in Coventry without double handling.
