Christmas Logistics!

Wednesday 4th December 2019

For many businesses Christmas is their busiest time of the year with peak trading time fast approaching. It is key for businesses to plan far enough in advance looking at past trends and stock already held and ordered. Even if you don't get it right this year you can start early for next year's busy periods. It is not just planning the logistics of the sales stock, point of sale material and advertising material it about carefully planning how you will meet your customers expectations at this peak selling time. Often contingency planning is essential to your success at peak trading times with the consideration of weather; one off sale days and demanding customers.

Getting your small business Christmas ready in 5 simple steps

Thursday 28th November 2019

🎄Get prepared: This step may seem like a given, but it's easy to let time slip away - suddenly it's mid-December and you haven't put anything in place. For some small businesses, Christmas can be the busiest time of the year, while others, like us, may find that things quieten down in the run up to the new year. Whichever it is for yours, you need to plan accordingly - especially when it comes to finances. If you know budgets are going to be tight over the coming months, make sure you put off any non-essential spending until things start picking up again.

How are you dealing with Brexit ?

Thursday 17th October 2019
Are you ready for Brexit?

Uncertainty still exists regarding the UK's departure from the EU, and it is difficult to tell how this will affect the general public and business, especially with movement of goods within the EU. Here are a few basic things that you can do to prepare 1. Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number. These need to be obtained if you are exporting or importing any goods outside the EU. This relates to any taxes or duties that will be paid relating to the import/export. If you do not have an EORI number, you can apply via the Government portal [] which is free. 2. It is highly likely that customs documents will be required for all exports and imports. Apollo…

Guidelines to Packaging

Friday 12th January 2018
How would you package your parcel to send?

Guidelines For Packaging Items Safely and Securely For Transport Whether you are sending a package for business or personal reasons, domestic or international, whether it arrives on time shouldn't be your main or only concern. Making sure it arrives in one piece with no or minimal damage to the packaging should be something high on your priority list. There are a number of issues that could arise from an incorrectly packaged parcel. The contents could be damaged, an item may become lost from the packaging breaking open, or the package may not be deliverable at all. Remember, your package gets handled by multiple people, arriving at several depots along the way, and although great care will be taken in handling your parcel,…

Whats in a Name??

Thursday 4th May 2017

Your company name - it says a lot about you - or at least it ought to. And we were just talking in the office this week about some of the names of our clients, and how they came about. And then we started to talk about more famous names - like Lego (Derived from the Danish words leg got, or to "play well") or IKEA (It's an acronym standing for Ingvar, Kamprad, Elmtaryd and Agunnaryd. Ingvar Kamprad is the name of the founder, Elmtaryd was his family's farm and Agunnaryd was the village where Kaprad grew up.) Then there are other companies choosing names that can't be pronounced, or are often misheard over the phone - how much time is spent by…
