Large-scale managed transport specialist Jigsaw has relocated its head office and national operations centre to bigger premises at Ashby de la Zouch in Leicestershire to support its ongoing business growth. Moving to the larger facility from its previous base in nearby Bardon will enable the company to build capacity into its operations as well as provide employees with better facilities and an improved working environment.
The UK leader in its field, Jigsaw’s innovative approach optimises the transport component of logistics and distribution. The company’s unique business model utilises the resources of eleven regional network Partner Hauliers with local expertise to create lean and highly efficient national managed transport services that combine flexibility and sustainability with reduced complexity and cost.
The company’s services are all co-ordinated from its national operations centre to provide customers and partner hauliers with a single point of contact for all transport-related activities. A location close to the centre of the country, with excellent access to the motorway and trunk-road network, is ideal for overseeing the company’s operations. Moving a small distance has allowed the company to retain its current 70-strong team without adding unnecessary disruption or travelling to their daily schedules.
“We had outgrown our previous base and moving to this new facility gives us the space to plan for the future, build the business and introduce even more innovation into our operations. It was important to make sure we made this move while retaining our highly skilled workforce and providing them with better facilities to enhance their working environment. We will recruit additional expertise to support existing operations and new clients.” Andy Humpherson, MD
