Allport Cargo Services
Global freight, supply chain update its existing WAN infrastructure to increase resilience and responsiveness across its Network.
A 9 Site WAN Migration for Logistics Experts.
Their Network extends to 450 offices, with more than 21,000 colleagues and a worldwide turnover exceeding £600 million.
Headquartered in Cowley, Middlesex, their 800 UK based colleagues operate out of 20 hi-tech logistics hubs, freight centres and packaging factories: picking, packing and transporting cargo globally every day for customers across a range of sectors.
Allport wished to transition to a responsive service provider who could proactively support the migration and management of an upgraded Network. This move would help Allport improve the development of its critical business systems ultimately enabling the business to increase efficiency and drive productivity.
Allport was looking for a flexible and scalable WAN infrastructure to connect multiple sites across the UK. Key to Allport’s business proposition is the availability and speed of data transfer across its Network. The Network underpins every process within the business and therefore the provision of a resilient and scalable Network is essential in day-to-day operations.
Allport sought a service provider that could offer not only a more scalable Network but also a management, analysis and monitoring platform. These value added services would allow Allport’s IT managers to focus on internal processes and demands.
The flatter Network structure is easier for Allport to manage, and the solution has built-in resilience by incorporating dual, carrier agnostic routers at each site. As a result, Allport is able to ensure optimum Network performance at all times.
As well as receiving 24 / 7 support and technical maintenance from Ideal Networks and Exponential-e, Allport has also been able to increase the visibility of its Network via a tailored web portal, allowing them to better plan Network resources according to business demands.
