SWA Resource Sharing: Redirecting our spare capacity
To assist wholesalers, producers, suppliers and end-users, the Scottish Wholesale Association is trying to keep the wheels turning and keep members' businesses open. We recognise that unfortunately foodservice wholesale is in decline but that there are still bills to pay and employees who we need to try to support. Through member feedback it was discussed that spare capacity, both in vehicles and personnel, within our membership could be redistributed to other sectors/members and across the rest of the food and drink supply chain.
The tables attached are purely to try to assist in matching requirements across the food and drink industry, including wholesale, manufacturing, convenience and multiples. Any company which would like to discuss the potential opportunity of sharing resources with other members should please complete the basic information below. SWA will act as a conduit to helping each other through these very challenging times.
This idea has been tabled with MSPs and discussed across the Scottish Government. Insurance providers are also looking favourably on this but businesses are advised to consult their own providers, with additional cover such as “Hire and Reward” being likely for those offering their delivery services to third parties.
