Incoming Deliveries and Collections

Avocet have adapted our delivery procedure in line with the new government requirements for COVID-19, this is to ensure that there is no physical or close contact between Avocet workforce and the incoming drivers.

The primary focus of this procedure is to ensure that incoming deliveries and collections are done safely to prevent injuries and ill health to delivery drivers, warehouse staff and others involved in the distribution or receipt of goods.

The safe collection and delivery of goods requires the co-operation and exchange of information between everyone involved in the delivery chain.

The procedure aims to ensure the following:

  • To send out safety information on deliveries and collections to other parties in the delivery chain
  • To request safety information on deliveries and collections from other parties in the delivery chain
  • Agree a safe delivery plan

Avocet’s delivery procedure on arrival:

  1. All delivery/collection drivers must use the intercom at the gate to access the yard.
  2. Collection reference will be given to the warehouse via the intercom along with vehicle registration no. This will be given to put on Avocet paperwork (packing list) as proof of delivery/collection.
  3. Drivers will be asked to pull in and open their vehicles to load. Drivers must then get back into their vehicle until it has been unloaded/ loaded. NOTE: If instructions are to be given for loading by the driver then a safe distance of 2 metres or more must be kept from the person loading the vehicle.
  4. Documentation does not need to be signed so there is no requirement for any driver to access the warehouse reception.
  5. Discretion will be given to drivers who need to use the toilet facilities.
  6. All staff are trained in correctly dis-infecting and cleaning their working areas on a regular basis.
  7. We are asking all drivers (where possible) to wear disposable gloves and have hand sanitisers in their vehicles.

Our core range of dyes offer the full gamut of colours with fastness to the most demanding standards.

Carpet printing products have long been a part of Avocet's portfolio. Great expertise and knowledge has been put into the development of dyes and auxiliaries for this industry sector. Resist or displacement effects when printing polyamide or wool/polyamide carpets using acid-acid dye resist techniques can be achieved by use of the speciality resist agent Avoresist PA and "metal free" Avonyl RP dyes. Excellent effects are also possible with metal complex dyes.

Avocet Textile Auxiliaries comprehensively cover the preparation, dyeing and finishing of polyester, cotton, wool, polyamide and most other fibres and blends.
