White goods win for Yusen

 White goods manufacturer Glen Dimplex Home Appliances has awarded Yusen Logistics the contract for delivery of its product range which included brands such as Stoves, Belling, New World, GE and LEC.

Yusen will deliver domestic products to small trade retail customers, and the industrial range, including LEC Industrial fridges for vaccines, to hospitals and healthcare providers.

Ian Worsley, head of logistics at Glen Dimplex said: “Our previous logistics solution gave us only one delivery per postcode per week. We’re delighted to have found a solution which offers increased delivery frequency, coupled with quality, we believe this will enable up to 20 per cent increase in our sales.”

Yusen’s white goods platform network, offers a nationwide delivery service, with each postcode area visited twice or three times per week.

It will collect daily from GDHA’s national distribution centre in Stoke on Trent, and use its Invision IT system to manage the delivery process and provide visibility throughout the supply chain.
