Panther invests in two-man delivery

Panther, the two man delivery specialist has invested £1m in new premises and specialist vehicles to handle growth in demand.

It offers next day delivery from one hub of heavy goods such as household furniture, kitchens and bathrooms.

Panther’s workforce includes 85 two-man teams. As a result, shoppers in England, Wales and Lower Scotland placing internet orders before 6.30pm can receive their items from as early as 7am the next day.

To meet changing market demands, the operator has replaced many of its articulated lorries with a mix of Sprinter and Luton vans which it reckons are more suitable for its delivery patterns.

A further £250,000 has been invested in upgrading its IT capability to offer full track-and-trace facility and geo-tagging.
