Expert knowledge to support your business

Many businesses in this sector are finding it increasingly important to be technologically agile, and with consumers currently placing high demands on fulfilment centres and expecting them to have the operations and resources in place to keep them up to date on their goods arriving in real time. As a result, many fulfilment centres are having to integrate with logistics providers in order to achieve this effectively.

Frequently, fulfilment centres are heavily dependent on the e-commerce sector. Whilst e-commerce is undoubtedly growing rapidly, there are times when the sector is restricted by external trends, with consumer patterns alternating between buying larger and smaller goods, as seen over the pandemic. This presents pressures and opportunities on fulfilment centres to adapt to changing behaviours successfully – depending on the location of the fulfilment centre and the funding that is available to you.

There are also large players situated within the fulfilment centre space, with deep pockets to invest in automation and technology. Facing these are smaller centres who are trying to compete with their niches. This imbalance forces centres to compete in a more unique way.

In addition to our strategists working with you to create a competitive business plan that secures your competitive edge and future, we can also help you find business software solutions that will drive operational efficiencies as you scale your operations.

Like many industries across the globe, the logistics industry has faced severe disruption, bringing with it new risks and opportunities.

Unsurprisingly due to the pandemic, the logistics industry shrank in size from €6trillion to €5.73trillion. It is expected to bounce back significantly, with a predicted size of €6.9trillion by 2024.

Looking towards the future, the success of logistical companies will be determined by how effectively they respond to the issues the pandemic has created. This includes:

  • changing individual and industrial customer expectations, who have come to expect quicker consignments at a lower price.
  • Labour shortages,
  • adopting new technologies to meet consumer expectations and reduce costs,
  • new entrants with a forward-thinking and competitive product and marketing mix

Client contact time

Our approach to ‘client contact time’ enables us to work in partnership with you, and means we are always available to give guidance and proactive support throughout the year.

‘Client contact time’ includes uncharged meeting time built into our relationship, so we can better understand your requirements.

Supporting you in the long-run

Many haulage companies are finding the present economic environment relatively challenging, although it does present some opportunities.

Whilst the huge shortage of HGV drivers coupled with the rising fuel costs is currently limiting marketing growth, optimism can be found in technological advancements, the opportunities e-commerce presents in terms of quick delivery times, and growing industrialisation – offering haulage companies other avenues for market expansion.

At Price Bailey, we have various teams across the firm that have experience working with national and international haulage firms looking to expand their business.

We can offer services beyond the normal compliance work, including:
