Century wins beauty contract

Beauty manufacturer Fragrances & Toiletries International has appointed Century Logistics to handle its warehousing and distribution as it gears up for the Christmas rush.

FTI’s stock enters Century’s 400,000 sq ft warehouse in Thetford and value added services such as repacking as volumes increase for the peak of Christmas demand. The two companies are also integrating IT systems.

Century Logistics will deliver products across the UK and to some 50 countries in Europe.

Chris Turner, FTI purchasing director, said: “We rented warehouse space and managed it ourselves but realised that, as we grew and it became more and more complicated, we were just not that good at it. Our customers have high expectations and we will be fined or orders will be sent back if it is not exactly right. We needed a partner to take away the headache.”
