Clipper establishes new NHS supply chain for PPE
03 April 2020
Clipper Logistics, a 3PL best known for retail, has been contracted to provide services to establish a new supply chain for NHS Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) products – delivering to NHS Hospital Trusts and other healthcare providers across the country.
Clipper rapidly mobilised its warehousing and fulfilment operations since engaging with the NHS, and deliveries have now commenced. From start to finish, mobilisation of the solution took 5 days, 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.”
