of the year
Committed to providing high quality service and with over 20 years in the industry, Mostell Logistics is a leading temperature controlled distribution provider throughout the UK and Europe supply chain. Part of Browns Food Group, Mostell Logistics has seen sustained investment over the years in our fleet, storage and back office systems. We pride ourselves in providing the best quality distribution service. Our dedicated distribution fleet includes dual compartment refrigerated trailers, designed to accommodate both chilled and frozen consignments on the same vehicle, allowing for a flexible and efficient service.
Our modern fleet consists of over 40 Mercedes tractor units with 25 rigid vehicles and sprinter vans for smaller deliveries. We operate over 50 refrigerated trailers, working closely with Thermoking and Gray & Adams. Our fleet is maintained to an extremely high standard at our onsite workshop facility. Tractors and trailers are regularly inspected and serviced and are also covered by full manufacturer repair and maintenance contracts.
With constant re-investment, Mostell Logistics takes full advantage of the latest developments in operating efficiency, reliability and economy, benefiting our customers and helping the environment. All our vehicles are equipped with Ctrack monitoring units and drivers carry mobile phones, allowing continuous contact and monitoring of their location and estimated time of arrival. All our drivers are DCPC qualified and are trained at our own in-house facility.
Mostell Logistics currently deliver over 4000 pallets per week. We provide same day delivery service across Scotland and Northern England and next day delivery across the rest of the UK. We also deliver into Ireland and Western Europe. The fleet operates 24/7, 365 days of the year. We operate from Scottish locations based in Ayrshire, Dumfriesshire, Lanarkshire and Lothian and have a storage facility in Wigan. We also have daily links with our sister operations, Tilbury Transport Ltd and Tilbury Coldstore Ltd based at Tilbury docks, Essex.
In order to underpin the reliability of our modern fleet, there are contractual arrangements in place with major vehicle, trailer and refrigeration service agents. These provide breakdown and recovery services throughout the UK and Ireland. Our drivers are authorised to contact these agents directly.
Our driving team is fully trained in the operation of temperature settings and recording equipment. All drivers understand the importance of adhering to customers’ site rules. Drivers are held fully responsible for care of PODs while in their possession and documentation is collected at the earliest opportunity.
The Mostell Logistics ethos is customer satisfaction. Consistency in our high level of service is what we pride ourselves on. We appreciate the fact that our team are our greatest asset and our driving team, office staff and management benefit from appraisal, training and development and work within a rewarding environment.
Trailers have dedicated livery promoting the various brands and sites within Browns Food Group. Consolidation of ongoing deliveries takes place mainly at our head office site in Dumfriesshire. As members of the Road Haulage Association we trade to the RHA Conditions of Carriage 2009 and CMR (when necessary). We also hold goods in transit insurance to meet and cover the requirements of these conditions.
Mostell Logistics drivers know they are ambassadors for us all, whether delivering full, part loads or single pallets to manufacturers, processors, retail multiples or independents. Each is as important as the other. We enjoy creating long-lasting relationships and provide the same level of service and attention to detail to our internal group and third party customers. We comply with the RHA Code of Conduct.
Constant investment and innovation in running equipment, technology and back office systems allows us to reduce vehicle downtime and keep produce transportation running smoothly and timely. We pride ourselves in providing a high quality service with experienced drivers and an excellent food safety record. Our dedicated fleet includes dual compartment refrigerated trailers. These trailers are designed to accommodate both chilled and frozen consignments on the same vehicle and allow us to offer the flexible service we are proud to promote. We are committed to provide high quality levels of service to all our customers and are well placed to serve the demands of this fast paced and ever changing industry.
