Meachers Global Logistics has sealed a deal with Millbrook Beds to operate the manufacturer’s entire transport network.
Under the terms of the three-year partnership, Hampshire-based Meachers will take on all of Millbrook Beds’ drivers and a number of the company’s trucks.
The deal sees Meachers, which has depots in Nursling and Fair Oak in Hampshire and in Derby, move from supporting the bed company with the distribution of beds and mattresses to fully managing it.
Gary Whittle, commercial director at Meachers (pictured right with Ross Thurston, operations director at Millbrook Beds) said: “We have a long-standing relationship with Millbrook Beds, which spans more than 10 years.
“I’m delighted to strengthen our relationship further with this new long-term agreement that will see Meachers become its total and sole UK logistics partner.

“The scale and geographic location of our fleet, combined with our knowledge and reputation for providing a high level of service, is something we are incredibly proud of as a business.
“Equal to that are our customers and the trust they place in us to keep their operations moving.”
Ross Thurston, Millbrook Beds operations director, said: “We have worked with Meachers for many years and are extremely pleased they have now taken over as our exclusive logistics partner.
“With Meachers’ extensive fleet and logistics experience, the delivery service we can now offer to our customers will improve significantly, enabling us to continue our expansion throughout the UK.
“I'd like to thank Gary and the team at Meachers for all their help and support in making the transition unbelievably smooth with no disruption to our customers.”
