While the insolvency practitioners and liquidators are sharpening their knives, it’s worth thinking about those transit assets that you may not have seen for a while.

As we start to recover from lockdown it’s easy to forget that not all companies will have survived.  This might include some of your customers and suppliers and there's a good chance you may have cages and trays sitting at sites which are about to be put into administration.

We know from experience that many administrators do not respect ownership or claims to title and will simply sell off your equipment to raise cash if the company goes into liquidation.  Because of this, we are currently rescuing equipment belonging to some of our clients before it becomes part of someone else’s fire sale.

If you believe you have assets at risk of disposal under liquidation, or simply sitting there waiting to be stolen, we can start to recover them for you.

Don’t wait to be a victim, “Get your retaliation in first”.

The safety car is on its final lap

So you’d better be ready to “step on the gas” if you want to be at the front.  What that means in reality is that now is the time to be gearing up to come out of lockdown.  It’s not just customers who went AWOL over April and May. The chances are that a lot of your essential transit equipment did too.  Without those roll cages, trays and magnums, you won’t get off to a flying start.

At ACQSYS we’ve been working throughout lockdown, supporting food and health supply chains by recovering their equipment to keep them moving.  We’ve also been working with mail and courier companies in meeting increased demand for home delivery.

For those of you who couldn’t trade during lockdown, there’s a good chance a lot of your transit assets will be in the wrong place when you come to start up again.  That’s been our experience so far anyway. 

So, while you concentrate on opening stores and welcoming customers, why not rely on us to help get your supply chain moving again by making sure you have the right equipment in place. 

What’s worse, if you’ve had to rent roll cages to overcome problems during lockdown, you now have to find them or face punitive charges for losses.  We can help you find those missing cages!

The message is simple - don’t get caught napping when the safety car pulls over.

Locked down ensuring you are not locked out

Posted 22-04-20, Tags: coronavirus, Covid-19 strategies, how to find lost roll cages, lockdown, locked down, lost rollcages, lost transit equipment, recover lost rollcages, recover rollcages, roll cage abuse, roll cage cost savings, roll cage recovery, roll cage theft, Roll cages, rollcages, transit equipment

While those of us who can are working from home, there are still many out there performing essential tasks.  This includes the ACQSYS asset recovery teams, keeping hospitals, supermarkets, parcel carriers and others supplied with the roll cages, trays and magnums necessary to keep their supply chains running.  All of our teams are working, across the country.

When you run out of this equipment, the whole delivery system slows and eventually jams, so we are working harder than ever to keep supply lines open by ensuring critical assets are re-inserted into the system.  At the moment, however, many delivery services have shut down and, when lockdown is over, it’s going to be a messy restart because a lot of outlets will never open again and most will be short of staff.

So, while I’m stuck here at home, I’m thinking of ways we at ACQSYS can help bring some sanity to the inevitable chaos.  One way is to carry out “sweeps” of all the sites that are currently closed where your cages and totes may be tied up.  The risk of leaving them there and hoping they’ll turn up is that the next time you see them will be on eBay and Facebook marketplace.  There are a lot of crooks out there and they will be quick off the mark, so our advice is to do the same.

If you think your equipment is at risk, why not contact us?  Some of us may be locked down but that doesn’t stop us preparing for the release date.
