Managed transport specialist Jigsaw makes its eighth consecutive appearance at Multimodal (Stand 6070) in 2018. The company will be showing how its innovative approach to optimising the transport component of logistics and distribution operations delivers excellent service and value with complete scalability and commercial flexibility for customers in the food, drink and white goods sectors.
“Multimodal is a key event for us because we meet the right profile of prospective customer, discuss with visitors how the market is evolving and explain why our unique network model reduces supply chain complexity and cost, and it provides the ideal platform to meet potential new Partner Hauliers to add to our network,” says Andy Humpherson, Jigsaw’s Managing Director. “Over the years we have developed some excellent relationships that started at this event.”
Since it was established in 2003, Jigsaw has implemented a revolutionary new business model for the transport sector. Using the resources of twelve regional network Partner Hauliers with local expertise it creates highly efficient national managed transport services that are flexible and sustainable with reduced complexity and cost.
Jigsaw has shown the business benefits of its innovative network model. The company is firmly established as the UK’s leading large-scale managed transport specialist. It has been working with some of the biggest and best-known brands to help them build their businesses while removing complexity and cost from the transport component of their distribution operations. Many of its contracts are now into their third, fourth or even fifth generation, demonstrating that these very demanding brand owners recognise the value of working with a specialist partner focused on achieving best-in-class service levels.
The company has developed its network of twelve Partner Hauliers to ensure it continues to offer the highest service levels. Each Partner Haulier has been hand-picked because of its expertise, willingness to work within a long-term partnership and geographic fit to the overall Jigsaw model. All are established and successful second or third-generation family-owned haulage businesses who understand that each customer has individual needs and a one-size-fits-all approach is never enough. By developing strong relationships and bringing the highly developed capabilities of these regional partners together, Jigsaw creates the flexible and scalable national solutions that are at the heart of its unique service offer. At Multimodal, the company will be seeking additional Partner Hauliers to support more capacity, greater flexibility and enhanced regional and specialist expertise as the business continues to grow. By becoming part of the growing Jigsaw network these transport specialists will have new business opportunities and contribute to the success of large-scale contracts with major brands.
Jigsaw has always taken its corporate responsibilities seriously and operates to the highest possible ethical standards. Its business model has always supported the increasingly demanding sustainability objectives of its clients by ensuring optimum utilisation of transport infrastructure and resources to reduce vehicle movements, road miles, CO2 emissions and cost.
