Christmas is an incredibly busy period for logistics for both providers and our customers. Now that the presents are sold and delivered, the YDL team sincerely hopes you enjoy your holidays!
This year has presented unprecedented challenges in the logistics industry. From worldwide shortages to accidental traffic jams in globally-vital ports, it’s been a crazy year of helping you manage your supply chain!
Learn about some of the highlights of our year at YDL, how our delivery options measure up to Santa himself, and more!
YDL’s Christmas Highlights
The YDL team is passionate about logistics and our local area. As a part of the APC network, we’ve found opportunities throughout 2021 to display our passion through action. This year, we’ve celebrated our award-winning service alongside APC. We’ve also helped fellow APC partner NEP meet the challenging demand this year has brought.
We looked after our own this year too. Our partnership with Westfield Health has allowed us to offer our staff private healthcare and dental plans as we recruit more and more HGV drivers. In addition, our new vehicles now feature the logo of the leading local charity “York Against Cancer”, helping to spread awareness from our depots and beyond.
How we Stack up to Santa
When Jolly Saint Nick rolls down the chimney late on Christmas Eve, he has learnt to master the efficiency of his supply chain. Over just one night, according to The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Santa has to travel at over 650 miles per second to deliver around 321,300 tons of cargo!
Whilst we aren’t travelling that fast, with over 115 national depots alongside overnight tracked delivery, we can confidently supply your business at a speed Santa wouldn’t sneeze at!
Smooth, fast logistics are a vital aspect of modern business. Customers demand efficiency and convenience in an ever more interconnected world. Unlike Santa, we don’t just deliver presents through chimneys. We can deliver everything from packages to hazardous chemicals across the UK and internationally, with a wide variety of delivery options available.
If you’re looking for your own Santa’s Grotto – we’ve got you covered here too. YDL offers over 200,000 sq ft of warehousing space for all of your materials, presents, et cetera. Warehousing is a great way to consolidate our supply chain for next year. Learn more about our warehousing services here.
Once again, Merry Christmas from the YDL Team! We’re looking forward to continuing to work with APC, our loyal customers and the new customers we’ll meet across 2022. Contact YDL to begin your logistics journey for the new year or learn more with our guides. We offer frequent updates and technical information on all aspects of our part in the logistics industry.
