What is a white glove delivery?

As a leading logistics specialist and white glove delivery expert, we often get asked to clarify what a white glove delivery is.

White glove delivery describes the service whereby the logistics specialist goes above and beyond to ensure the customer gets their order request complete to ultimate satisfaction.

From project management, site surveys and risk assessments, we go the extra mile to ensure we carry out the service to the highest standards.

The service comes under many names, white glove delivery, final mile delivery or last mile delivery, whichever one you use we are the leading logistics specialist in the UK and fully capable of supporting your needs.

What differentiates you from a freight haulier?

The main difference is the level of service we go up to. Many freight hauliers provide good services, however typically, they will only deliver the customer product to the loading bay or goods in area. For customers that require their product to be delivered to the room of choice this can cause a headache.

They need not fear, as our differentiator is we will go above and beyond to get our customers product into their room of choice. With expert planning, skilled delivery crew and the latest specialist handling equipment available on the market we can ensure our customers get their product where it is needed.

We regularly move large, fragile and expensive product up ramps, stairs, lift shafts, crane into windows floors up, we welcome the challenge and always deliver.

How can I arrange a delivery or collection?

To arrange a delivery or collection first email our sales team at sales-rl@uk.rhenus.com or call us at 01784 422 900. 

We have different departments, each of them with specialised sector knowledge. Our sales team will be happy to understand your requirement and connect you with the appropriate team whom will best serve you.

Can I arrange a delivery or collection for a specific time?

Yes, we recognise and appreciate that customers may have specific requirements relating to their logistics requests. We are vastly experienced with attending sites of different natures where a high level of security clearance is required and means that you may need to arrive at specified times to go through clearance.

Or whether this can be meeting engineers at a hospital or laboratory to assist them with the installation of equipment for their customer.

Can I arrange a delivery or collection for out of hours?

Yes, as mentioned above we accommodate all of our customers’ requirements. We regularly support our customers with out of hours’ delivery, for example delivering into underground stations whilst they are not operational.

Contact us to let us know the nature of your enquiry.

Will you deliver to inside of the building?

Yes. This is what separates us from the majority of logistics hauliers. Most of the time logistics hauliers will only deliver to your goods in or loading bay area. Even if they say they can deliver to point of use, they tend to struggle and cannot complete the delivery as required.

Our experience and expertise comes in providing both file mile delivery and white glove delivery solutions, where we can deliver and position your product into the room of choice no-matter what obstacles we meet.

With a visit to site to perform a site survey, the right planning combined with skilled resource and the latest handling equipment, we will deliver your product inside the building.

Can you visit my site to perform a site survey?

Yes. In addition to our delivery specialists, we also have a team of solution specialists. This team is highly trained and knowledgeable on logistics solutions. From safe manual handling techniques to what is the most appropriate specialist handling equipment to use, this team will design the delivery method which gets the customer product into the room of choice.

Can you provide named crew to help assist with security requirements?

Yes. Due to an increasing number of sites having a high level of security, we are well rehearsed with needing to provide the names of our delivery specialist to our customers for them to arrange access.

Typically, we provide these the day prior, but if our customers have special requirements necessitating these further in advance we are happy to support.

How many crew are in the delivery vehicle?

Rhenus Lupprians run a fleet of specialised transportation vehicles, each of them containing 2 x delivery specialists.

Whilst that is our default, we are of course able to flex up resource where required to provide additional manpower.

Do your trucks have tail lifts?
