Sweet win for Palletways Fulfilment

International confectionery manufacturer Fini Sweets has awarded Palletways a contract, to distribute their entire product range throughout the UK.

Spanish company Fini Sweets exports to more than 80 countries worldwide, stocking around 200 products in the UK alone, including marshmallows, jellies, and liquorice.

Having experience global growth of 26.3 per cent in 2013, the brand is targeting the UK as a prime market for its products.

Palletways Fulfilment, the group’s warehousing solutions operation, will now outsource all Fini’sUK warehousing and distribution activities, from its national hub in Fradley Park, Lichfield.

The company will use the 100,000 sq ft facility to store products, process orders, and provide a pick/pack service, as well as modify and re-work some of Fini’s popular brands.

Palletways will then distribute all products to a number of national retail chains and wholesalers via its nationwide delivery network.

“Palletways provided the ideal fit for distributing our products, as we require a logistics firm that can provide fast and reliable service to ensure all of our products reach customers well within the strict use-by dates,” said managing director of Fini Sweets UK, Paul Southam.

“It also allows us to monitor and manage our stock, plus having our products stored at the hub in Lichfield is another major benefit, as it allows us to place orders late in the day for next day delivery.”
