Lecico awards delivery contract to Palletways

Lecico, the manufacturer of bathroom suites and fittings, has appointed Palletways to handle its deliveries to plumbers and builders merchants across the UK.

Palletways expects to move more than 20,000 pallets a year for Lecico.

Sean Klemis, supply chain director at Lecico, said: “What impressed us most was Palletways’ new Digital Information Hub. The online portal allows us see the current status of all of our consignments in real-time plus the new one-hour ETA function means our staff have access to time critical information which is important when responding to customer enquiries.”

Lecico has factories in Alexandria, Egypt, Kfarchima, Lebanon and Vitry-le-François, France with the capacity to produce more than 6.7 million pieces of sanitary ware and 28 million sq m of tiles per year. It’s UK distribution centre is in Bedford.

Steve Waterhouse of Palletways said: “Winning this business means we will be using expertise and resource from a number of our members, including H&M Distribution in Bedfordshire, who will undertake trunking from Lecico to our hub in Greenford and also Palletways London who will transport a number of trailers everyday to headquarters in the Midlands to assist with balances.”
