'Just In Time' Solutions For Ecotech
EcoTech is currently one of the UK's largest single source specialist converters of non-woven cleaning cloths and impregnated wipes. The company has recently invested over £1 million into a new 30,000ft2 production site equipped with state of the art converting machinery, and is well placed in terms of location, resources and reputation to further develop its business across the UK and into mainland Europe.
EcoTech's extensive product range is sold via a national network of distributors, covering all market sectors and all geographical regions of the UK. Reliable distribution is a vital element of the business; 98% of orders on the standard range taken before 2:00pm are despatched the same day. EcoTech's mission is to raise this figure to 100%.
Palletline Logistics in action to meet the challenge
EcoTech has been working with Palletline Logistics for almost 10 years, using the Palletline palletised distribution network to guarantee fast and reliable deliveries.
The company handles some 65% of EcoTech's entire distribution requirement, with the balance managed using EcoTech's own fleet for full loads combined with a percentage of customer collections from the Coventry manufacturing facility.
"The service we receive from Palletline Logistics makes it easy and affordable to keep our promises to our customers," stated Managing Director Paul Brownhill. "I can be totally confident that when the goods are collected, they will be delivered to our customers on time and in good condition."
Using technology to drive performance
Palletline's investment in the latest technology has further increased the transparency of the service. "The introduction of track and trace and digital signature capture have simplified the process and speeded up responses, so we can see clearly the progress and completion of each delivery, enabling us to provide an improved service for our customers too," confirmed Paul.
