Shepherd Offshore Comments:

“In the build-up to this project, communication was essential between the client and Shepherd Offshore to ensure logistical and organisational success in receiving fragile products. Planning was also essential to ensure receipt, movement, and storage, before despatching as well.

Shepherd Offshore has so far, co-ordinated 13 different means of transport acquiring 284 pallets of fragile glass products, pallets weighing up to 400kg and loads weighing up to 5tons. Alongside this, we have continued to receive more loads whilst despatching certain loads resulting in an effective supply chain with several moving parts as we have transferred 156 pallets to date.

Working hard, the team successfully supported our clients at each stage of the project and fulfilled all scopes of work. Job well done to all involved in this complex logistical project. We hope to continue this harmonious relationship with a local manufacturer again showcasing North East capability and potential when we work together!”
