Asset finance company, Dawsongroup Finance, is helping logistics and material handling companies prepare for what is expected to be an unprecedented peak in Christmas shopping by enabling them to temporarily expand their fleets. The Ringwood-based asset finance company has won a major leasing contract worth £15 million to supply delivery trucks and trailers to a supermarket chain, allowing them to expand their delivery capacity over the Christmas period, which is expected to see unprecedented demand for eCommerce delivering and material handling.
This is one of the many asset finance solutions which Dawsongroup Finance provide to support businesses, helping them to respond to changing demands while maintaining the business capital they need to see them through the current economic challenges.
“After a turbulent year, this Christmas trading period is more important than ever for businesses. We want people to get in touch with us now to discuss the options we have available to help them be prepared, whether that is just with a temporary uplift in their delivery capacity or longer-term improvements to their logistics chain,” said Kevin Wills, Commercial Director of Dawsongroup Finance.
“It might be new trucks, cold stores, or the latest material handling technology to ensure their warehouses keep running at optimum capacity – we can help businesses get what they need, and guide them through a range of innovative financing options and approaches which they may not otherwise have considered.”
Despite the worldwide economic downturn, this year has been a busy one for Dawsongroup Finance, which has seen impressive financial figures with some sectors seeing up to 15% growth on last year. The finance company states that businesses investing in their recovery and growing their fleet without risking large capital is the reason for their successful 2020.
This successful year is paired with a large recruitment drive, doubling their headcount, and the launch of a new website.
“The work we’ve done this year, and the support we’ve been able to offer businesses big and small, is testament to the quality of what we do. We are proud to come through for businesses in the UK, and give them the finance options they need to weather tough times and ensure their businesses are ready to embrace the opportunities they need to thrive,” added Kevin Wills.
