Powered by our extensive LTL road freight network, with reverse logistics from EV Cargo we are able to offer fast and efficient collection and consolidation solutions.
Unlike traditional forwarding logistics, which focuses on goods movement from manufacturer to end consumer, reverse logistics are designed to deal with the movement of goods in the opposite direction, typically designated for returns, repairs, recycling or disposal purposes.
Our broad network of 150 local collection and delivery depots, all intrinsically linked to our central pallet sortation superhub, allows us to provide pallet collection services that cover every UK postcode.
Thousands of customers trust us to recover and return valuable assets in a time efficient and cost saving manner, arranging overnight collection and consolidation for linehaul pick up.
With our consolidation solutions, we combine multiple smaller shipments into one large shipment, making it more economically and environmentally efficient to transport.
Our expert teams work alongside customers to find the most optimal routes, carriers and transportation modes for their collection and consolidation requirements.
A crucial aspect of our reverse logistics services is the visibility provided at every step of the collection and consolidation process by our leading ONE EV Cargo technology platform, with innovative RF scanning ensuring that customers have accurate real time visibility of shipments.
Choosing our experts and technology for your reverse logistics needs means that your business can benefit from a customised collection and consolidation solution that is specifically adapted to meet the requirements of your supply chain, reducing holding costs, delivering shorter lead times and optimising order fulfilment.
Supply Chain Engineering
Our specialist supply chain engineers are backed by years of experience in creating bespoke supply chain solutions.
Combining the principles of data analysis, logistics and operations management, we work to create efficient and effective supply chains for our customers that maximise productivity and reduce disruptions.
We evaluate your supply chain model inside and out using real world data, enabling us to get a full understanding of your processes.
Closely collaborating with your supply chain team, we then leverage our experience to engineer a supply chain solution that suits the priorities of your business, considering important factors such as transportation costs, lead times and inventory levels.
This thorough analysis allows us to provide a visualisation of your supply chain as a whole, presenting opportunities to identify potential risks and inefficiencies early on which serves to reduce costs whilst improving service levels.
We can then configure your supply chain systems to determine optimal warehouse locations and design transportation methods and routes aimed at minimising expense and improving productivity.
Through the integration of our leading supply chain technology, EV Cargo is also able to adapt to address the changing needs of businesses and the evolving landscape of global markets with real-time data analytics, warehouse management and transportation management systems.
By adopting a dynamic approach to supply chain optimisation, we are providing our customers with a competitive edge, creating a well designed and robust supply chain that is able to withstand fluctuating demand and potential uncertainties.
To truly realise the potential of your supply chain and logistics capabilities, you need a partner that can seamlessly integrate leading technology, configure your processes and provide training to your current teams.
Based in London and Hong Kong, our professional services experts specialise in helping our customers to manage the intricate process of software implementation.
Built upon a wealth of experience in delivering successful supply chain optimisations and software implementation to businesses worldwide, our team is dedicated to ensuring that you get the most out of your EV Cargo technology systems.
Our sophisticated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software integration service creates a synchronised ecosystem for managing various business functions.
By integrating our software with your current ERP systems, you can benefit from a seamless two-way flow of supply chain data allowing for –
