Unrivalled quality control
As part of the quality control process, each pallet is scanned at least five times during dispatch through to delivery. This means customers can see where their goods are, in real time; when they will reach the depot as well as the overall progress of their journey, including ETAs. Combined with our digital signature capture on delivery, a POD is usually available within minutes of completion.
