COVID-19: Supporting the Supply of Essential Goods

Exporta are still operating under government guidelines and as a supplier to Businesses that are currently providing essential items we are focussing on supporting their supply chains to keep goods moving


Supporting Key Industries with Handling Material:

At Exporta we support many industries, but our key focus has switched to supporting those industries that are supplying essential items to those that need them across the country.

These industries are food and food manufacture, agriculture, pharmaceutical and healthcare along with the NHS. We have always supplied these vital businesses with equipment for moving, protecting and storing their goods in their supply chains such as plastic pallets, storage boxes and containers, crates and pallet boxes as well as shelving and racking.

At this point in time it is as important as ever that these critical services continue to supply essential items where they are needed, and we will support them as much as possible and do so within the Governments guidance and following all recommendations.

As it stands our operations and delivery service is still operating as normal, we still have excellent stock levels of all product handling items and workwear. All open orders will be fulfilled without delay. Our supply chain and deliver services are still intact and functioning well.

This means we are still able to support all businesses with our normal range and our normal delivery service which is the next working day for all stocked lines if the order is placed before 4pm.


PPE – Personal Protective Equipment:

As a supplier of PPE, we have had to take the decision to ringfence what stock we have left only for our existing PPE customers, critical services and other vital businesses and therefore restrict the supply of these items.  Stock is running very low on many key items and this is the only area of our business where a UK wide shortage of products has affected our ability to supply. We are doing everything we can to secure replenishment of these products as soon as is possible.



Over recent weeks we have prepared and planned a full migration of all head office based roles that can be carried out from home to be home based. As of the end of today all non-operational functions have been relocated to home working and a virtual office environment. This means customer service, sales, marketing, finance, purchasing and all management.

All team members are equipped to support you, our customers as normal even if they are remote from the office. Phone calls, chats, emails and quotations will all be serviced as normal and within our usual fast service levels.

We are here for you and we are here to support our country through this unprecedented time and will continue to do so for as long as we are able to and within the Government guidelines.

Staff safe, stay at home.
