diamondlogistics are proud to announce the award of an alcohol license to enable product movements for our customers in time for the summer season.
Last week I represented the Courier industry at the ‘APPG for Road Freight and Logistics, Skills Shortage Inquiry’ hosted by Sir Mike Penning MP. Yawn I hear you say – but it really isn’t! There is a mounting crisis in logistics in terms of driver recruitment, with a 60,000 shortfall, operating in a sector that doesn’t always attract the best talent. Logistics is the lifeblood of UK industry and it is a growing crisis meeting the ever increasing demand, particularly with the growing need to scale to support online fulfilment.
We’re not just logistic professionals here at diamond but also consumers. So when we receive a beautiful product that we've waited over 15 working days for and it's delivered by the wrong carrier for the product we can’t help but open it with a little reluctance. This is something that our Company Secretary Charlotte recently experienced.
“I had ordered two beautiful plants from an online company. I had gone back and forth over whether to buy plants online for a while, but after checking the companies’ reviews I decided to place my order. The company after all had good reviews and garden centres have plants delivered to them all the time. What could possibly go wrong?
Our CCO Dan Allin has spoken to lots of independent same day courier company owners of late regarding a very unique and valuable network opportunity that we have here at diamond logistics.
We are super excited to have launched a new diamond depot in one of our previously existing locations. Our Southampton fulfilment centre launched in the beginning of June this year. diamondlogistics Southampton run all of the diamond services, fulfilment, same day, overnight and international couriers. We were just eager to see how they were getting on so we asked the following.
