Telenet Global Logistics – Looking Back at 2017
Looking Back at Telenet’s Year of Freight Forwarding
With only a few days to go until the start of 2018, we have decided to take a look back at some of the biggest parts of our 2017 year. From large contracts to charity events and exhibitions we are recapping the best parts of our 2017.
The New Years Day Parade 2017
Starting the year with, yet again, The New Years Day Parade. For the past 3 years we have shipped over 90 tonne of marching band instruments and equipment from the USA to the UK, and this year was no different. We spent the end of 2016 importing the goods via airfreight and the first weeks of 2017 collecting the goods to ship back to America. This year we are shipping more then ever for The New Years Day Parade 2018 with over 100 tonne of band equipment. As well as distributing all of the merchandise, props, VIP bags and party goods.
Teddy Rocks Festival
In April we donated some of our vans for the week to help transport cargo for the Teddy Rocks Festival. This festival is for a charity raising money for children with cancer. We also had a team of people on the day at the festival helping the staff behind the stages.
We shipped the models for an American lego builder to Brick live 2017 held in the Excel Arena London. These models were displayed for hundred of thousands of people to see. We imported the models from the USA, transported them to the Excel and then Transported them back to our warehouse for storage and finally shipped them back to the USA.
Propel Star Wars Drones
Working with Propel Drones, We imported 50,000 Star Wars Drones into the UK from the USA via airfreight. The drones were then sorted into product type. The goods were stored within our warehouse until they were ready to be shipped. We then distributed all of the drones to various shops around the UK and Europe including Hamleys, John Lewis, Argos, Maplins, Toys R Us and Mankind.
Tough Mudder Charity Run
In September, Our marketing manager Jack run the Tough Mudder with a team of friends for the Crohn’s and Colitis UK charity. They chose to run for this charity to support family and friends within the business and outside of Telenet.
Festival and Outdoor Events Show
We exhibited at the festival and outdoor event show in September. Our team were able to display all of the services we offer and talk to some of the potential clients within our industry to see if we can help them with any of the services that we offer.
VIP Concert Bag Pick and Pack
This year we completed a pick and pack job for over 20,000 VIP concert bags. We shipped the goods in, stored them within our warehouse then completed the pick and pack process ready for the goods to be shipped to the correct destinations around Europe.
ShakeSphere Shaker Bottles
Towards the end of this year we started working with Dragons Den Contestant and winner of 2 investments ShakeSphere. We have shipped their shaker bottles via ocean freight and completed a pick and pack process of putting the bottles together ready for distribution.
