No mountain high enough for APC

[ November 1, 2016   //   ]

PGS Global Logistics, part of the UK-wide APC Overnight network turned its hand to international deliveries to help its customer, Salts Healthcare, deliver more than 900 pairs of orthotic shoes to Bhutan.

The APC Overnight depot volunteered to take the shoes to the remote Draktsho Vocational Training Centre for special needs children, after Salts ran up against severe logistical issues.

PGS Global Logistics’ managing director Paul Eyles and commercial director David Bayliss not only subsidised the transport charges entirely and sent the shoes directly to Kolkata. They then hired vehicles and drivers to make the 26 hour journey to Bhutan to deliver the 11 pallets of shoes. They then flew to the remote kingdom to present the shoes to the children.
