West Yorkshire logistics firm wins contract for new NHS PPE supply chain
A Yorkshire-based logistics specialist has been contracted to help to establish a new supply chain for the NHS amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Clipper Logistics has been awarded the contract to provide services for the new supply chain, which will provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) products to NHS trusts and facilities around the country.
Based in Leeds, Clipper Logistics has mobilised its warehousing and fulfilment operations over five days to meet the needs of the contract, including setting up a full warehouse management system for over 200,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space.
Steve Parkin, executive chairman at Clipper commented: “These are unprecedented times, and the support we have received from NHS Supply Chain, Unipart and 101 Logistic Brigade has been outstanding, and has enabled us to create a truly collaborative solution as a result.
“The solution has required tremendous flexibility and a shared sense of purpose and support in these challenging times. I’d like to personally thank all of our colleagues for their dedication and support in these unusual and difficult circumstances.
“We are all pleased to be able to support the NHS in a critical time for the country, helping NHS staff operate safely whilst caring for those in need.”
