• Case Study: Kinship Logistics

    02/05/2019

Part of the SH Pratt Group, Kinship Logistics specialises in temperature-controlled distribution to a large customer base throughout the UK and Northern Europe.

Kinship Logistics have had a relationship with Gray & Adams for over 20 years and have recently ordered several trailers as they prepare for their growth with SH Pratt’s newest venture, Halo. Halo is an added-value, multi-temperature, product-handling facility based at the Port of London Gateway, focused on delivering quality of product, whilst reducing costs within the supply chain.

CUSTOMER PROBLEM:

Kinship’s success has led them to experience rapid growth and required several new trailers to support this development as well as their new partnership with Halo at the Port of London Gateway.

With a long-standing relationship with Gray and Adams, Kinship Logistics wanted the UK’s leading temperature controlled trailer manufacturer to develop a bespoke solution, which would support their growth. Furthermore, Halo’s desire to reduce their carbon footprint by 1.5 million kilos in 2019 means that collectively, the three businesses are having a positive impact on the environment.

WORKING COLLABORATIVELY:

Gray and Adams and Kinship Logistics work collaboratively to ensure a reliable and high quality product. This builds on excellent working relationships to ensure a strong partnership approach and a sustainable platform for future opportunities.

SOLUTION:

Together, we have developed a high quality, reliable and efficient dual temperature controlled trailer with Banksman lighting, Haldex soft docking system and a ThermoKing refrigeration unit to our exact specifications.

IMPACT:

Kinship are looking for these trailers to support their growth with Halo at the Port of London Gateway and their mission to cut waste, costs and time to market, enabling increased freshness for customers with a more sustainable supply chain.

Having hit the brief, Gray and Adams products are supporting in the successful delivery of Kinship Logistics’ growth ambition.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL:

“Having known Gray & Adams for over 20 years, we have extremely high levels of trust in their engineering expertise and innovative approach as they have always provided us with first class customer service and high quality, reliable and efficient products.” – Howard Gill, Managing Director, Kinship Logistics
