Details of our work with clients in the private sector and public sector, with examples from 3PL, Reverse Logistics, Customer Service, Promotional Marketing, and Contract Packing.
Want to know how we get great results?
We’re delighted to present some examples of projects we’ve been heavily involved in over the years. We’ve worked on many fascinating and challenging projects over the years and it’s a pleasure to show off about them a bit.
Granby has been the trusted fulfilment partner to some of the best-loved household brands and public sector organisations since 1959. With a reputation for going above and beyond, our promotional marketing, contract packing and 3PL services deliver the goods every time.
Here’s more insight into what we do and how. If you’d like to know more, we’re happy to talk you through it – please get in touch.
DfE: 'Wildflowers in schools' co-pack & 3PL
Granby collated, despatched and tracked the successful distribution of more than 200,000 seeds packets to 18,060 schools on behalf of the DfE and the Eden Project to mark the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III.
JTI: product launch & marketing
We supported the launch of Ploom X in the UK. Ploom X uses innovative Heatflow™ technology to create an authentic, smokeless tobacco experience by heating, not burning tobacco sticks in a handheld device.
Through kitting, inventory management POS and fulfilment, Granby facilitates JTI’s UK-wide marketing and fulfilment, plus multiple product launches and using our key position in the supply chain to uphold the brand’s sustainability objectives.
ONS: COVID infection survey logistics
Granby was brought in as the logistics provider on a critical UK-wide project. Our decades of experience in 3PL was really put to the test, in what is one of our largest and most complex public sector projects ever.
Taking receipt of 30 million items, we processed 255k+ Study Worker orders and helped the ONS collect critical information essential to the government’s response to the pandemic.
Frank Green: B2B & B2C fulfilment
Frank Green creates beautifully designed, functional and award-winning cups and bottles that customers love to use and re-use. 1000s of personalised designs are possible, based on customer choice of material, colour, size and accessories, plus the added complexity of shipping to the UK and EU.
Granby provides the technology and expertise to fulfil orders to customers and businesses, with a close eye on sustainability.
Office for National Statistics: Census 2021
The Census is a national project with substantial complexity and dependencies. The 2021 Census is the largest on record – 97% completed on time, with no items sent to landfill. Its success highlights the capabilities of efficient 3PL solutions.
It looks on paper like an impossibly complex task. Yet, it was successfully planned and carried out by Granby and the ONS.
Kickstart: Empowering the workforce
Rabiah Mayat joined Granby under the Kickstart Scheme to gain experience in customer service, after she was made redundant from Debenhams.
The scheme led to a full time position in our inbound Customer Service team. She’s one of three Kickstarters who we recruited into high quality roles at our Blackburn site, while others have gone on to secure roles at other local businesses.
