Distribution is the lifeblood of our business. It’s what keeps us moving, and what keeps us growing.
To give you an idea of the scale of this operation, here are a few facts and figures:
- Our distribution centre (DC) is located in Stoke on Trent, which has capacity to store 55,000 pallets. In the DC, you’ll find over 4000 different kinds of product being handled as units, cartons, bags, and oversized goods.
- Around 250 permanent colleague members work in this part of our company, supplying all of our stores right across the UK and Northern Ireland.
- We have a fleet of 21 articulated lorries, 2 rigid trailers, one 18 tonne vehicle and one 7.5 tonne vehicle. In total, they travel an average of 40,000 miles a week.
But enough of the statistics. The most important thing in the Distribution Centre is the passion our team has for great organisation and logistics.
From our Fork Lift Drivers to Computer Operators, there’s a shared goal to get the right products to the right people in the right time. Everyone is a link is the distribution chain.
As we continue to grow as a business, this totally team-focused department is busier and lively than ever and even more committed to training its colleague and fostering a rewarding working environment. We maintain our operating standards to BSI ISO 9001:2008 accreditation.
