Not all 3PL warehousing is the same

Harbour Freight

Green More Button

Business Connect caught up with Steve Swinburn, managing director of Harbour International Freight, a specialist freight forwarder based in Trafford Park in the UK and in strategic sites across Ireland. Steve explains that using Harbour’s approach on third party logistics can make not just a difference in terms of service and price, but can offer real advantages in supply chain sustainability: “Harbour is different in that its 3PL warehouse is an extension of its Pall-Ex overnight palletised delivery network as well its own internal trunks to its own depots in Dublin, Belfast, Limerick and Cork – all from the heart of Trafford Park in Manchester.

“By using a company like Harbour for your 3PL you are reducing your Carbon Footprint, which goes a long way to improving your ESG – Environmental, Social & Governance framework by helping your net zero carbon goals. Harbour has a long-standing Carbon reduction and net zero policy, and has over the last two years planted over 17,914 trees and removed 1,187.2 tonnes of CO2 from its UK operations. Your goods are picked from the 3PL section of the warehouse and moved to the Pall-Ex and Irish/European cross dock areas under cover in the same warehouse by clean electric FTL. This would involve additional vehicle collection miles and a higher Carbon Footprint for your deliveries if you used other 3rd party warehousing providers without their own end distribution networks.

“You also have full visibility of all your goods whether it is cartons, pallets or oversized with the ProSku WMS warehouse management system.

“Long gone are the days of not knowing exactly what you have. ‘When’ and ‘where’ using the Harbour WMS means that everything is at your fingertips. Harbour offers quality warehousing with the ability to get your goods to your end customer throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe, in a streamlined and straightforward process. One point of contact, one supplier invoice – from a company that is 100% customer focused to ensure the job gets done without the drama and headache.”

“For peace of mind, there is Harbour!”
