All members of their staff are not only helpful but very cooperative, and all queries are dealt with in an efficient manner.

In cases of our deliveries I can say that they are carried out on time and with no fuss, and most importantly to the customers satisfaction.

"National and international rail networks have been actively using N LH for a number of years now, initially to handle our pallet movements in and out of the warehouse using there pallet network.

Having gained great confidence with them it was decided to offer them the opportunity to run our Milk Run delivering our stores to our Southern Depots in the UK. They were successful in there tender and have now been operating the Milk Run for us since September 2011.

There has been a vast improvement in this operation since NLH took over with positive feedback from the depots, and with this in mind we look forward to working with NLH for the forceable future.
