End to end solution across the delivery marketplace
Panther Warehousing has launched three new services to further reinforce its position as a niche supplier in the two-man market. The three new services will allow Panther, in addition to its existing two-man service, to provide a complete end to end solution to meet the needs of the delivery marketplace.
The first of the three new services is ‘Solo’ a one-man delivery offering. As in the case of two-man, it is once again a niche market, which is currently under served due to lack of carrier choice against a backdrop of ever-increased customer demand. Aimed at deliveries of items which are too large to be handled by a mechanical sortation system, it is a service which is set to grow exponentially. In 2013, the carrier industry handled circa 360 million large items, a figure which is estimated to grow to over 507.0 million larger items in 2018. The decision to launch the new ‘Solo’ service came after Panther identified a gap in the market as a result of increased online orders for larger items coupled with a reduction in carrier choice and services over the last two years. The new one-man ‘Solo’ service offers the option of next day or choice of day delivery, delivery time notification as well as live-tracking and E-POD, an electronic proof of delivery system. Customers will also continue to receive the same level of care, professionalism and high-end service that they would receive from a two-man delivery.
The second is Panther’s new Deliver and Build service which provides the end customer with an option to have their home delivery order assembled, putting an end to the stress that many associate with self-assembly goods. Panther believes this service gives it a competitive edge.
Additionally, Panther’s new Installation service will provide customers with the option of installing gas, electric and dual fuel as part of their delivery. It will be carried out in partnership with leading installation specialists National Appliance Care, who will provide a fleet of fully trained fitters.
Panther also intends to launch a Sunday delivery facility which will be launched across its range of services this year.
