Sunnflair starts camping with Norbert

Camping specialist Sunnflair has appointed Norbert Dentressangle Transport Services as its primary transport provider.

Prior to the arrangement Sunnflair was using several external carriers to collect and distribute products, which led to unsatisfactory service and cost issues.

Through Norbert Dentressangle, Sunnflair is also now able to offer a next day service to stockists, including the safe delivery of hazardous gas products which are subject to strict ADR (Accord Dangereux Routier) carriage requirements.

The third party logistics company makes up to 15 collections a day from Sunnflair premises at Chelmsford and Ipswich.

Next day deliveries are then made to the company’s 2,800 retail stockists across the country as required.

The distribution network also has the flexibility to accommodate rising volumes prior to and during the peak trading spring and summer months.

Sunnflair is also able to access to the bespoke SHARP (shipment handling and reporting program) technology provided by Norbert Dentressangle, which allows it to track and trace orders and respond to customer enquiries.

The online system enables Sunnflair to place multiple delivery orders at its head office in Chelmsford, which are transmitted electronically to Norbert Dentressangle before being distributed to vehicles across its shared-user network.
