BACKGROUND

DHL is a global leader in the logistics industry specialising in international shipping, courier services and transportation.

DHL’s Supply Chain Division has a contract with industrial machinery maker JCB to provide logistics support for their global manufacturing inbound supply forwarding.

CargoStop started working with DHL over 3 years ago to help ensure that the JCB load was safely secured so that no danger would be posed to any person working on or around the transportation vehicle or when the load was in transit on the road. We supply all of the Ratchet Straps required for DHL to safely transport JCBs to their destinations, ensuring that all loads are compliant with health and safety regulations..

THE CHALLENGE

The HSE Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 states that: ‘The weight, distribution, packing and adjustment of the load of such vehicle or trailer shall at all times be such, that no danger is caused or is likely to be caused to any person in or on the vehicle or trailer or on a road.’

DHL required a cargo control solution that would provide optimal levels of safety for their staff working on the JCB contract and also would ensure that the JCB loads would not shift in transit and then fall from vehicles, causing injuries and/or fatalities.

THE SOLUTION

Ratchet Straps are some of the most heavily used cargo securing products in the world. Although they all look similar, we have spent many years listening to our customers and developing our product to ensure that it is better than anyone else’s

DHL saw the benefits that Cargo-Stop’s ratchet straps could bring. They worked with us to develop a bespoke strap with DHL branding, to raise brand awareness and prevent loss and theft.

As well as Ratchet Straps, DHL also purchase CargoStop’s Edge Protectors and Wear Sleeves to provide the full cargo constraint solution. Our stock holding agreement also means that DHL have a substantial volume of stock available to them to draw down whenever they require it. Next day delivery of their bespoke branded product is therefore guaranteed

WHAT THEY SAY...

“CargoStop ratchet straps are of an extremely high quality. They do their job well and we’ve had no complaints. The fact that we can have our own bespoke branded straps is also a real benefit”

“CargoStop provide an excellent service. Our product is always available to us for next day delivery, the team are responsive at all times and they are always happy to help with our queries.”
