UK-based logistics firm Unipart Logistics has launched a new service offering customers the opportunity to select Unipart as their Lead Logistics Provider (LLP).
Announced today [6 March], the company believes this to be ‘the ideal time to unveil its new proposition with supply chain uncertainty caused by events such as Brexit, Covid-19, and the Ukraine conflict’.
In light of such uncertainty, Unipart is convinced that ‘businesses are increasingly looking for a single, trusted, and independent LLP which can enable them to achieve strategic transformation through increased resilience, productivity, and sustainability across the supply chain’.
Ian Truesdale, Managing Director of Unipart Logistics, explained: “Until the last few years, we had had a reasonable amount of supply chain stability, but more recent events have changed this and we are now in a period of immense geopolitical uncertainty.
“Our LLP proposition is a natural extension of the services we already provide to many of our customers, including some of the biggest names in automotive, tech, and healthcare.”
Unipart Logistics’ customers include Jaguar Land Rover, Airbus, Sky, and NHS Supply Chain.
The offering is centred around a ‘bespoke, fully integrated LLP platform providing real-time visibility and control to manage a customer’s supply chain, now and into the future’.
Adam Jones, Business Development and Sector Strategies Director, added: “Our unique platform gives customers the ability to control, design, and manage everything in one place and, crucially, in real-time, driving continuous operational improvement.
“Our data-driven platform allows businesses to make decisions today, but also supports planning five years and beyond, future-proofing their supply chain and enabling strategic decision-making.
“In addition to increased resilience and productivity, the other major benefit of our platform is its capability to support an organisation’s sustainability goals and net zero targets.
“We can work with our customers to embed greater sustainability across the supply chain considering the business imperatives of speed, cost savings and efficiencies alongside net-zero targets.”
