The health and safety of our employees, customers and partners are paramount, which is why we at Seabourne Group closely monitor developments around the Corona virus.
We follow the general guidelines and instructions of the government and other authorities. Although the chance of bacteria and viruses being transmitted is minimal through our packages, scanners or tablets, we can understand the increasing concerns among our recipients. Of course we want to ensure that the packages are delivered correctly. The movement of goods is still open and without any restrictions. Seabourne and his partners operates therefore still as business as usual. Please be advised that we hear more and more that crossing borders will be a challenge.
Consignees will not be required to personally sign the ePOD device or hard copy document, but will be required to provide their name verbally to the delivery driver whereby the driver will include this on the delivery record. Whereby a customer refuses to provide their name, the consignment will not be left with them but fall under the ‘refused goods’ process.
Seabourne Express South Africa was given an opportunity to add a complementary business to our existing portfolio. In the process the company has gained more visibility in its core courier and distribution business and gained a warehouse component specifically aimed at the specialist technology market. This has meant upgrades to most of our branches countrywide as the whole company embraced this exciting and important new venture!
Most of the planning took place at the end of 2015, the building of infrastructure (shelving, IT backbone, telephony system) was done in early January 2016 and the new site was occupied after 11 years doing business at the previous premises. Our actual handover of stock commenced end of January and continued for 6 weeks.
Seabourne South Africa is proud to continue its excellent service to our current clients and look forward to extend the same level of service to our new business partners.
Seabourne Group are delighted to announce the latest addition to the Group’s portfolio. Today, Custom Threads 2015 Limited, set up as a 100% owned Group subsidiary, acquired the goodwill and certain assets of an existing embroidery and clothing printing business in Basingstoke. A strategic addition to the Group’s range of services, it dovetails with the Supply Chain & Solutions services we provide and will enable Seabourne to offer to the clothing sector, additional bespoke services over and above the basic storage requirements.
In making the acquisition, Seabourne welcomes Bob Bailey to the Group. Bob has many years of experience within the industry and is looking forward to the opportunities afforded by the Group to develop the client base and increase the services offered.
