Learn more about the benefits of YDL warehousing for your business below.

What is YDL Warehousing?

YDL has over 200,000 sq ft of warehousing available for our logistics customers. We offer this fully-staffed warehouse for secure storage, distribution and more.

Benefits of YDL warehousing

The more consolidated your logistics and supply chain is, the faster orders can be fulfilled. Our YDL staff are masters of fast and efficient logistics. By trusting YDL for both your delivery and warehousing, you ensure you can deliver products as effectively as possible.

Our warehousing services are particularly well-suited to eCommerce businesses. Unlike Brick-and-Mortar stores, many eCommerce businesses don’t have the physical space to store supplies and finished products.

Utilising our warehousing services can help keep stockpiling costs down and ensure that your items will be with you as soon as they are required.

Why trust YDL?

YDL is a unique, genuinely independent carrier of all freight. Our partnerships with APC and TPN allow us to store and deliver parcels pallets and more efficiently. In addition, we offer a wide range of services to suit the needs of your business and your customers. We can provide you with the services you need to get your supplies delivered from hazardous chemicals to overnight tracked delivery.

YDL has won countless awards for continued excellence in our logistics and warehousing services. We are proud winners of “The Logichem European Supply Chain Project of the Year’.

YDL Helping Hand

YDL Lends a Helping Hand

This past year hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing for logistics. COVID-19 and issues in the Suez have affected many depots across the country. But, we’ve come out the other side stronger here at YDL with little impact on the day-to-day logistics needs of our customers. As we continue to grow, we know how important it is to support local businesses – especially in our industry.

Learn more about what YDL is doing to help here.

Nationwide Express Parcels

YDL works closely with multiple depots and logistic companies as a part of The Pallet Network. This collaborative network of British logistic providers allows the UK logistics industry as a whole to benefit from each other’s strength and provide fast, competitive logistics on a local level.

One member of TPN, Nationwide Express Parcels (NEP), was hit by a sudden spike in work in their region of Glossop. Such a rapid increase was unexpected, even as we come out of this pandemic.

YDL MD Paul McLaren quickly realised NEP would not have the resources to deal with their growing backlog single-handedly. Therefore, it was time to get a team together. YDL enlisted the help of fellow TPN members LPC and McDowell Haulage and Distribution to form a compliment of 11 vehicles and drivers.

On an early Saturday morning, the fleet assembled at NEP depot to begin assistance. It quickly became apparent that the team offered to NEP incredible efficiency, meaning only three drivers would be needed that Saturday. As the rest stood down, it was clear YDL had lived up to the TPN Partner Powered Alliance Mantra.

One Team, TPN!

York Against Cancer

New Truck Day is often widely celebrated at YDL. A shiny new symbol of our continued support for UK logistics is worth cheering about after all. This time, however, it felt even sweeter. YDL prides itself on supporting the local community in York. We’re always looking to give back wherever and however we can.

Next time you see one of our trucks heading out from the depot or into your business,  keep your eyes peeled for a new logo on the cab. Our new truck proudly displays the logo of local charity ‘York Against Cancer.’ We hope to spread awareness of the team’s great work across York and the UK at large. According to studies, during the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic, almost 45% of those with cancer symptoms were unable to see a GP. So let’s set that right however we can.

 

Our excellent connections through the TPN network allow us to offer unique logistics opportunities to UK businesses – including overnight and same-day delivery. Via this or through awareness, YDL is here to help. Learn more about our services and stay updated on our social channels to make sure you never miss a thing.
