Palletways has extended its contract as the main haulier for independent bathroom and tile manufacturer Better Bathrooms.

The network is expected to move around 100,000 pallets a year for the retailer, as well as providing support to warehousing staff at Better Bathroom’s new Didcot distribution centre.

Palletways will work alongside the retailer’s in-house delivery fleet on orders placed both online and in-store.

Rob Gittins, Palletways sales director (UK), pictured left, with Better Bathrooms's Colin Stevens, right, 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.

He added: “This contract extension is a great coup for the business and is testament to the first class service all of our customers, including Better Bathrooms, have come to expect from us.”

Colin Stevens, Better Bathrooms founder and CEO, 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.”

The news comes just a week after Palletways said it is to expand its business into Poland and the Baltic region; from next month it will run services to Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania from its hub in Germany.
