The Challenge

SPL Foods needed a partner who could help navigate the complexities of Brexit and the introduction of CDS – something in which Denholm Good Logistics has extensive knowledge and expertise in. Denholm Good Logistics, also assisted in setting up CFSP, which allowed SPL Foods to have a faster release of goods from customs, improved cash flow, and electronic submission of declarations, in turn creating a more streamlined process.

The Solution

SPL was impacted by COVID-19, the pandemic meant that with rates reaching an all-time high, and SPL took the commercial decision to reduce imports from the Far East and India. As a result of this, the priority for SPL Foods was to find the best freight forwarding rates whilst maintaining high standard service levels. Working closely with the Denholm Good Logistics freight forwarding team they were able to achieve this.

Partnering with Denholm Good Logistics has enabled SPL Foods to work with a local logistics company that helps to provide innovative creative solutions, whilst also adhering to their individual business requirements, and ultimately providing the best service possible.
