Many local communities have been rallying around to donate aid to Ukrainian refugees. While international transport seems to be hitting the media, and appear to be organised fairly well through official charities, how are the donations getting to the correct distribution hubs in the UK?
During March, Simon Morley, managing director of our sister company Ital Transport, contacted Chorley and District Support for the Ukraine, a community group that has been receiving aid donations from Lancashire residents and consolidating them onto pallets.
It became apparent that they needed help domestically, in getting their palletised aid from their makeshift warehouse in Chorley to the International Aid Trust warehouse in Lockstock Hall. Ital Transport UK was able to provide a 26t tail lift truck for the day to transfer this vital aid, completing the final link in the supply chain to get the goods away to where they are needed.”
