Norbert Dentressangle is providing specialist storage for 180 pallets of bottled propane and butane gas in support of the 2010 camping season on behalf of Argos.
The seasonal storage operation is part of a central procurement initiative aimed at freeing space due to challenging stock turnaround during the critical peak trading period.
Bobby Clark, distribution strategic planning manager for Argos said: “From our first meeting, Norbert Dentressangle demonstrated a sound understanding of our immediate requirements and its ability to develop and implement cost-effective solutions to meet them. They have also shown a genuine willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ to support us in other ways, including the development of additional proposals to bring further value and improvements to our operation.”
The operation follows on from Dentressangle’s handling of the external storage operation for Argos for the 2009 Christmas peak, providing some 11,000 additional pallet spaces to accommodate the overflow of products including toys, Christmas trees and catalogues.
