Being situated in the Midlands, Coventry offers an ideal location for companies looking to store their goods in central England ready to be distributed throughout the UK to various outlets.
Like many urban areas in the Midlands, it is well located for transport links; the M6, M69, M45 and M40 are all nearby and the A45 and A46 also serve the city.
KB Transport Solutions (KBTS) is a thriving logistics and warehousing business, based in Coventry. After being established in 2010 during the height of a recession, it had a slow progression into the transport and warehouse storage industry, due to limited funds. Despite this, the company continued to pursue its ambitions and develop long standing contracts and relationships with its customers, which thanks to KBTS’ high standards of service, are still working with the organisation today. “Originally it was just myself and my business partner, Managing Director Kevin Bennett, who started and operated the business; however, we have now developed our staff and can boast a team consisting of over 30 employees. As a family-run business, we promote a close-knit environment with family and friends being on both the board of directors and operating as members of staff,” states Alan Mohomed, Finance Director and Partner at KB Transport Solutions Ltd.
“At the start, we solely provided warehouse services, after being given the opportunity to operate from a small area of a site at Edgewick Park, Coventry,” he added. “We eventually outgrew this area, and continued to take over full occupancy of this site, becoming a limited company in September 2011. Following this, our next project was developing into transport and distribution services.
This next evolution required a move to a new site on Henley Road, Coventry, situated just off Junction 3 on the M6, making it a key location in the UK, with essential access to main transport links. “This site, which we have now occupied for over five years, enabled us to progress within the transport industry,” agreed Alan. “We were then given the opportunity to expand again, and we took on a facility on Sandy Lane in Coventry, which we have fully racked out to give a complete service to our warehouse customers. The relocation to Sandy Lane has enabled us to move all our warehouse operations to one central site, as opposed to being fragmented at both locations.”
Thanks to the developments and expansions that KBTS has undertaken, the business now operates from both Henley Road and Sandy Lane. The 17,000-square feet Henley Road site mainly offers home delivery operations and distribution services across the country; whilst the facilities at Sandy Lane are purely for warehouse purposes. This site operates as an organised, stylish facility, with LED lighting throughout making it more energy efficient, and a track and trace system, which is fully optimised, so customers can track their consignments through their own personal log-in. “This enables us to provide a complete service to our warehouse customers,” explains Alan. “To support our team and serve our customers more efficiently, in the third quarter of 2017, we also replaced all our forklift trucks; this consists of two reach trucks, two gas trucks, two crown trucks, and two electric trucks and we have a couple of man riders as well.”
In fact, KBTS’ expansion has been so successful that the company has now taken over almost the entire Sandy Lane Estate in Coventry, occupying 130,000-square feet of the 136,000-square feet site, owned by the commercial property company Wigley Group. KBTS and Wigley have not only developed a close working relationship, but also both get involved in local community work, with Wigley organising charity events, both companies working with Zoë’s Place, a charity for sick children, and KBTS about to sponsor a local up and coming football club for children. “This raises our own name as a local firm but also it’s our way of giving back,” added Alan.
