New contracts with household names across different home and garden sectors
Panther Warehousing has made a strong start to 2015, securing £5.0 million of new business in the first few weeks of the year, as demand for its assisted delivery services for larger items in the home and garden furniture market continued to grow.
The two-man white glove delivery specialist has won new contracts with household names across a raft of different home and garden sectors, including beds, glazing, garden furniture and electrical appliances. Unprecedented growth in the business has meant that turnover levels have soared, nearly doubling 2013’s £11.0 million figure to £20.0 million in 2014. The Company has projected a turnover of £30.0 million this year.
The new business growth demonstrates that Northampton-based Panther can meet the challenge of changing online retail patterns where purchasers are increasingly ordering larger items, such as furniture and electrical goods, and nominating a specific delivery day.
Over the last few years Panther has improved its flexibility through the addition of a new range of timed services along with a hugely successful Saturday delivery service.
However, it is not resting on its laurels with an ambitious programme planned to expand the business even further.
Panther is continually investing in leading-edge technology, including developing its mobile app, geo-tagging for drivers, a track and trace system and an ACD telephone system.
The Company recently re-located to Lodge Farm Industrial Estate in Northampton, a site that is three times larger than its previous base in Crick, Northamptonshire, and which has a 25 bay cross-docking facility. The move took its depot network to six.
