Menzies response to Covid19

Keeping the supply chain moving

The very nature of our work in supply chain logistics means we come into contact with a high volume of items and people every day. And as the pandemic has proven, supply chains are crucial to every aspect of today’s society. Working from home was never an option. Shutting down was out of the question. So we overhauled our ways of working overnight, for the safety of our people and our customers.

 

In doing so, we’ve been able to deliver critical PPE and life-saving medical supplies to NHS Scotland services across the country. To further our support, we’ve joined forces with the leading players in the UK’s parcel industry to collectively manage the nationwide collection and delivery of Covid-19 testing kits direct to laboratories. We’ve collected and delivered 150,832 testing kits since they became available (correct up to Nov 2020), with 18 depots supporting communities across the UK. We’ll continue to do so as long as it’s needed.

CHANGES AT A GLANCE:

  • Guided by official advice – Regular changes made based on advice from WHO, UK Government and regional governments

 

  • PPE supplies – Stocked up and readily available for our people across the business
