Why they chose JamVans The Hospice of St Francis came to us due to shop expansion, therefore the demand for logistics was increasing. Hospice of St Francis required a more robust logistical solution, with lack of knowledge on transport regulations and guidance of how to streamline their deliveries and collections, JamVans became their third party logistics provider.
What do we do?
We are responsible for collecting donations and re-distributing stock across the 10 charity shops. We also provide storage for seasonal stock and/or stock being rotated around the shops. We are their go to company for dealing with their distribution and logistics which leaves their staff to do what they do best. The Hospice also have a pre-owned furniture shop, with this we collect the donated furniture and delivery to their shop to then be restored and sold. We step in again to re-deliver the furniture to its new home.
How we have helped
When we first started working with the Hospice of St Francis they required a two-man team every day of the week. We worked closely with their team over several months, with the implementation of roll cages, tail lifts and store alterations, we were able to reduce the cost dramatically through several efficiency saving measures which resulted in savings of over 60% to the Hospice of St Francis.
