We are business as usual. The office, our production and transport are still fully operational.

We are obviously trying to get as many people working from home where possible and mitigating risk as much as we can. We are able to log on to our systems remotely and will be re-routing calls where necessary. We are deemed as an essential business as we support large parts of the cable, energy and telecommunications industries (cable, optical fibre, utilities and infrastructure) and we are also providing logistics support not just to the industry but as a sub-contractor to essential services. As a result we are trying as much as possible to maintain a business as usual approach.

To resolve some of the restraints that we all now inevitably face with social distancing, Marlin Industries fleet of articulated, urban or rigid vehicles will all be supplied with Moffett rear mounted fork lift truck’s (2 tonne and 3 tonne carrying capacity available) so our drivers can self-load or unload your products to prevent any unnecessary contact and maintain social distancing as per Government guidelines. In addition our EPoD’s can have the collection recipient’s name documented without having to handle any paperwork or sign the electronic device. Any relevant paperwork can also be photographed by our drivers as proof of collection if necessary.

With all of the measures in place we can support you and your customers distribution requirements whilst adhering and respecting social distancing instructions and maintaining the safety of both your staff and our own in these trying times. In the meantime if you have any plywood reel, refurbished drum, new drum, wood waste disposal or logistics requirements please feel free to contact the office on 01978 854 854.
