We welcomed Member of Parliament for the Wells constituency, Tessa Munt to our Shepton Mallet premises and during a guided tour around the site, Ms Munt was shown how advances in technology have changed the way that freight and vehicle movements are recorded, and how managing the information surrounding a delivery is now almost as important as the delivery itself.
Tessa Munt said, "It was fascinating to discover how complex an operation the supply chain actually is. In particular, it is really good to see a successful local company committed to developing its business in Somerset".
Framptons' Managing Director, Andrew Frampton, said, "Transport has been frequently overlooked and ignored by successive Governments, yet what we do is an essential part of the British economy. We were pleased to have the opportunity to showcase our industry and to highlight important issues which we hope will be listened to in Whitehall".
