Spring Bank Holiday Surprise...

When one of Unipart’s clients had its usual shutdown over the Spring Bank Holiday, everyone geared up to receive additional engines for storage. The team at Unipart Aftermarket Logistics at Honeybourne sat down and worked out how to receive several thousand extra engines. However at the last minute, over 2500 more engines than expected were delivered. Imagine finding space for an additional 1000 tonnes of engines – that is the equivalent of finding space to park 50 double decker buses.

Our team at Honeybourne instantly moved into action, and came up with creative ways of storing pallets effectively, flexing their shifts and putting in the “hard yards”. It would have been easy for the team to hold their hands up and say it just couldn’t be done – however, that is not how this team works; they understood the serious, negative impact this would have on the customer if the engines were turned away, and moved mountains (of metal!) to meet the customer need.
