We provide a range of fully managed logistics solutions that can be scaled & tailored to suit your exact requirements.
A holistic, large-scale logistics solution that works with each customer’s specific requirements.
At CSL, we understand the pressures that in-house private fleet management can place on businesses. With this in mind, we developed a logistics solution that is specifically designed to alleviate these pressures from our customers’ businesses in a cost-effective, highly reliable and streamlined way.
Data-led distribution management
With our extensive experience, we know that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to large-scale logistics. As such, working collaboratively with our customers is key to our approach. Working in partnership, our process begins by gaining a rich and in-depth understanding of each customer’s operation.
From these insights, we are then able to expertly analyse distribution data, which leads to the data-led development of the most appropriate logistics solution for their unique business needs.
Our team of experts then establish the perfect level of dedicated capacity required for each operation, including the number of trucks, drivers and trailers. Going further, we also offer heightened flexibility to our customers through the use of our partner haulier network.
With CSL by your side, you will have access to a turnkey solution that has been tailored to suit your organisation’s specific logistics requirements, including drivers, management, operational support, maintenance and fuel and – importantly – there are no equipment leases.
Our teams of skilled and proficient logistics experts pride themselves on delivering an exceptional service, every time, no matter the job’s size. This ethos is reflected in every stage of our process and you can be confident that we will become a positive extension of your organisation. As well as safely and dynamically living out your brand on the road, our data analysts work hard behind the scenes to identify opportunities for improvements and cost-savings.
With robust in-house operational capabilities, we are able to provide additional support as and when our customers need it, such as equipment maintenance, ongoing learning and development and surge capacity.
Our passion for data and continual improvement lends itself seamlessly to ensuring that we are delivering on our customer commitments, and we continually monitor, refine and improve our services in line with our ongoing expert data analysis.
We truly see our customers’ success as our success and with a dedicated on-site team, tightly managed processes and accountable Director-level involvement across Contract Management, we are a secure, reliable and transparent provider of logistics solutions.

Warehousing and storage solutions to suit your operation’s needs
At CSL, we pride ourselves on delivering considered solutions that are created with each customer’s specific needs in mind, both now and in the long-term.

Our warehousing and storage service has the flexibility required to meet the ever-evolving requirements of the logistics industry, including permanent contract, temporary storage and short lead-time pick and pack.

Our solutions are fully transparent and allow for complete visibility of the entire process, with WMS integration also available.
Working in tandem with our in-house experts, all load movements can be managed and tracked through our in-house live TMS, offering flexible, high service levels that use data analysis to reduce cost, both now and in the future.
With full visibility of stockholding and efficient invoicing processes, we offer a streamlined warehousing and storage solution that will embed itself within your operation as business as usual.

A service that flexes to suit your needs
Since 1997, we have been supporting our customers with their varied and diverse logistics requirements. With over 2 decades of logistics experience, we understand the inherent importance of being able to support our customers via a dedicated flexible distribution service.
Working with our customers’ needs, our flexible logistics solution can accommodate any FTL (full truckload) and LTL (less than a truckload) movements on a flexible basis.
Whether you have a particular seasonal demand, a pressing project, time-critical or a difficult fluctuation in order volumes, we can help you to deliver on your your customer commitments, every single time.
With significant internal investment in CSL Live – our sophisticated carrier management platform – our customers are able to quickly, easily and conveniently communicate their logistics requirements to our team of experts.
We then get to work with matching these requirements with our own fleet capacity, as well as checking availability in our extensive carrier network to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution for each customer requirement.
As part of our continual improvement initiative, we continually monitor carrier performance across a range of criteria, including the percentage of works delivered on time, in full (Delivered OTIF) and any potential damage in transit.
Working in tandem, the use of CSL Live also gives us real-time access to drivers, routes and accurate-to-the-minute reporting, which furthers our ability to realise opportunities for improvements and to ensure our services are being delivered, as expected, every time.
This data-led logistics process enables us to deliver ad hoc distribution services that are cost-effective, flexible in their coverage and entirely in line with our quality assurance measures – with CSL’s flexible distribution solution, you can be confident that there will be no compromise on service levels.
Working collaboratively, we first establish an in-depth understanding of each customer’s operation. From this, we are able to analyse the data and use our extensive knowledge and leading technology to create the most efficient and cost-effective solution.
Effective implementation is at the core of our streamlined service offering. With dedicated on-site management teams, we are able to stay with our customers throughout the entire process, ensuring that any potential future efficiencies and cost-savings are highlighted and implemented.
We work proactively to ensure that we can continue to deliver the high quality services that our customers have come to expect. From our people and technology to processes and sustainability, we invest and work diligently to continually evidence our Corporate Social Responsibility and keep ahead of the curve.
