Specialising in the transportation and assembly of sensitive electronic and medical equipment in the UK, Bishopsgate has seen an increased demand for providing an express service into Scotland that competes directly with dedicated courier vehicles…but at a much lower price point.
With such sensitive and valuable equipment, our clients have always relied on the quality of our box sided vehicles and security checked crews and can trust that their goods will get there safely and on time. But this new daily service affords our clients much more flexibility as it shortens the delivery window.
We can now collect a piece of medical equipment from Germany on a Monday, ship it overnight to the UK on Tuesday and deliver into a Glasgow hospital on Wednesday morning. This service competes with air freight and as the goods travel unpacked it is very cost effective too.
Bishopsgate’s Sales Manager John Winter adds, “And it’s not just when it gets there but how it gets there. This is not a ‘groupage’ service where it sometimes seems that the objective is to cram as much product onto the vehicle as possible” He adds, “Our secure, tagged and boxed line haul service only carries high quality technical and clean goods…and often they are ‘naked’ and unpacked too!” When you consider that the cost of packaging can sometimes be disproportionate to the value of the goods, the savings that can be made can be quite impressive”.
