Merton-based Hotbray supplies parts for Land Rover, Jaguar and prestige vehicles. The automotive aftermarket sector is extremely competitive, particularly in terms of service and parts availability, so it is essential that Hotbray has a responsive and completely reliable transport supplier.
That supplier is Croydon-based CK Transport. Mark Soale, business development manager at Hotbray, says: â€œFor the past decade or so, CK Transport Ltd has been a great partner and absolutely vital in the development of our business. They have an excellent track record of picking up and delivering our loads on time without issue. Their planning team is always happy to help with whatever we throw their way, and they have great expertise.â€
CK currently handles up to 120 pallets a month for Hotbray through TPN, as well as delivering a full container to Hotbrayâ€™s warehouse from one of its key suppliers. â€œEverythingâ€™s always on time and in one piece,â€ says Soale. â€œI would recommend CK Transport to anybody looking for great rates and a great service.â€
CK Transport has a thriving full-service logistics business in South London. It has recently expanded its fleet with two new 18-tonne rigids for TPN delivery and collection work. MD Dave Creamer says: â€œOur pallet volumes are growing, mainly organically. We are always happy to discuss any companyâ€™s business needs, but we do enjoy forming long-term collaborative relationships, such as we have with Hotbray. It shows us we are doing our job well and adapting to our customersâ€™ needs as they change.â€
