Sure Logistics supports fight against COVID-19 with NHS Nightingale deliveries

Sure Group’s transportation business, Sure Logistics, has been supporting the fight against COVID-19 by delivering hospital beds to several new NHS Nightingale Hospitals that have just opened in the north-west of England.

On Tuesday 14th April, Sure Logistics was asked to carry out four deliveries of emergency beds, to four new Nightingale Hospitals opening in the North West of England.

MK Pressings, a firm are based in Milton Keynes, had been working around the clock to manufacture these beds to an urgent timescale, in time for the hospitals opening.

The new Nightingale hospitals are being used to treat emergency patients during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Craig Rushworth, Transport Manager at Sure Logistics, said: “We received a call on Monday evening, to make two urgent collections from Milton Keynes the following morning, and given the urgency and importance of the loads, we moved around our delivery schedule to free up two vehicles at short notice.

“We made deliveries to hospitals the following day in Carlisle, Kendall, Barrow, and Whitehaven, meeting the customer’s delivery targets.

“Our team did an outstanding job of getting these beds ready in incredibly difficult circumstances so well done to everyone involved!”

A great team effort from the guys at MK Pressings and our Sure Logistics Transport team! #NHSThankYou
