Our first container loading from our new premises on Severalls Business Park took place at the end of October. Not only was this a first from our new warehouse but also, as can be seen below, the container was delivered by a vehicle fitted with a crane and dropped onto the ground actually inside the warehouse. Previously we have had to load containers sat on trucks parked outside. Having the container inside was fantastically benefitial not only as we could load in the dry but also loading on ground level meant not having to lift the bikes up to the back of the container.
The shipment of 416 bicycles is now on its' way to Glads House Bike Project in Mombasa, Kenya. This is one of several projects supported by our partner Glads House.
Many thanks to all of the individuals. businesses and organisations who generously donated the bikes to us. It won't be too long before the bikes are are enjoying a new lease of life and providing great improvement to people's lives in Africa.
Container on the ground for loading, our new system, faster and safer :)
