ASAP – The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers were hosting a convention @Venues Bishopsgate London and in need of a flexible transport service delivering and collecting materials for the convention.
ASAP were faced with a number of challenges in transporting their materials to and from the venue due to the nature of exhibition halls. The majority of Exhibition venues have strict instructions on set up and break down of stands etc. and booking in slots are required for delivery of any equipment. This causes issues for even the smallest of deliveries as the overnight and pallet networks aren’t flexible enough to accommodate such requests. DHL, DPD etc. can easily deliver on a timed before service such as a pre-9 or pre 12 but are enable to deliver at a specified time slot forcing the exhibitors to look to alternative transport solutions.
To overcome the time specific delivery and collection asap needed a dedicated courier service. Working within the No.1 Business Centre encourages all of the companies based within it to collaborate, grow and work together. All About Freight are a Freight Forwarding and Courier Company www.allaboutfreight.co.uk who specialise in Same Day deliveries. A dedicated same day delivery enables you the customer to have your shipments collected and delivered on the date and time you require.

After discussing the requirements with asap All About Freight organised a dedicated vehicle to collect from Gloucester and deliver direct to the loading bay stipulated by Venues at the required time. With the service being a dedicated delivery the driver was on hand to unload the shipment and place it in the designated loading bay as instructed, unlike the network drivers Same Day Couriers will always assist in ensuring the goods being delivered are safely delivered and signed for by the correct signatory. The collection and return was organised for the end of the convention, asap informed All About Freight that the items for collection would be at a specific location and marked up for our attention. The Same Day Courier arrived within the allotted time slot, collected and delivered directly back to All About Freight where the items were stored until asap were on hand to receive the items.
