15 Jun 2020 LT Baldwin Transport feeding the front line and supporting the community
A London-based logistics company is supporting its local community free of charge by delivering to foodbanks nationwide using Pallet-Track’s network members.
LT Baldwin Transport, which joined the award-winning Pallet-Track network in 2014, has been a part of the East London community for 25 years and has provided logistical support to hundreds of customers and individuals in the local area.
After lockdown was introduced in March, the Leyton-based business reviewed its operational procedures and practices and formed collaborations with furniture and catering hire business Yahire, fresh food delivery company Scoff Meals and Longdan, the UK’s largest Vietnamese cash and carry, to deliver essential services to the community.
Within days of the review, LT Baldwin Transport mobilised its operations to provide free food parcels to Age UK as part of Scoff Meals’ collaboration with Origin Housing which is funding care packages for its vulnerable tenants.
Yahire also engaged celebrity volunteer Vicky Pattison (pictured below), a star of Geordie Shore, and her boyfriend Ercan Ramandan, who helped the team pack the 600 boxes a week that are distributed to Age UK.
Working with partners Longdan and Yahire, LT Baldwin helped distribute donations to staff at three -hospitals, including North Middlesex. essential supplies and services to the NHS, supermarkets, police stations, local government, schools and utility companies.
Founder of LT Baldwin, Lee Baldwin said: “We were honoured to be part of this collaboration. It’s been a pleasure to help others who have been struggling. Providing flexibility and support during our community’s most challenging times has become part of our service as well as providing food parcel donations to staff at three local hospitals.”
