Colin Stevens, founder and CEO of Better Bathrooms, said: “It’s a great pleasure to continue working with Palletways.  We feel they are a great extension to our business in helping us fulfil our multi-site operation.”

Rob Gittins, sales director for Palletways, said: “We have been working with Better Bathrooms for a number of years and we’re thrilled to have been retained as their logistics partner. We have the ability to react to significant peaks and troughs in any client’s business; our sophisticated information technology processes goods and sorts it into designated areas within the hub – efficiencies which helps Better Bathrooms meet its promise of rapid and next day delivery, which is a particular advantage when dealing with demand in the consumer market.
