TMAT Supply Chain Efficiency Development

TMAT have recently combined the Despatch and Stores offices to create a Goods Control Team. The second phase of this development  is to create a Delivery & Collection Window System.

The Delivery/ Collection Windows concept works with Suppliers and Customers to create practices and efficiencies to ultimately achieve higher quality and service delivery.

How will this initiative affect Suppliers? – at the point of “order confirmation” a delivery date & time will be allocated.

The timings for receipt of deliveries will be:

6:30am – 9:30am Monday to Friday &

4:30pm – 6:30pm Monday to Thursday

How will this initiative affect Customers? – at the point of a confirmed collection the date & time will be determined and booked by our logistics team at TMAT.

We envisage this new process to start on 20 October 2014.

The Delivery/ Collection Window is one of a number of internal initiatives we are developing as part of our commitment to continuous improvement.


TMAT support Yorkshire Air Ambulance

TMAT recently donated £100 to The Yorkshire Air Ambulance. TMAT was asked to support the charity by an employee who was a neighbour of Jamie Lynch who sadly died in a motorcycle accident in May.  Jamie’s family arranged a charity event “ShedFest” which was held  in August at New Whittington Club to raise funds for The Yorkshire Air Ambulance and in memorial of Jamie.   Jamie’s family said that they were grateful for all the donations they  received for the charity.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a life saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across Yorkshire. They operate seven days a week, 365 days a year, covering a vast landscape that not only includes major cities and motor ways, but also rural and isolated locations.  The Yorkshire Air Ambulance receives no government assistance and all the funds for this vital service are raised by Company’s and the public.

To keep providing this life saving service the charity needs to raise £9990 per day to keep both of Yorkshire’s Air Ambulances maintained and in the air. The generosity that they receive is the life blood of the charity and with out this generosity, they would not be able to provide the service.
