Sankey Home & Garden Products deal streamlines distribution

Sankey Home & Garden Products has agreed a deal that will see its distribution times cut by half.

The manufacturer of garden and horticultural products has employed Clearway Distribution to dispatch and deliver all of its injection and rotationally moulded products throughout the UK.
 
From January 2009 the logistics company will be responsible for delivering premium-quality injection and rotationally moulded indoor and outdoor pots, a selection of water butts and indoor watering cans, propagators, trays and accessories.   
 
Sankey managing director Andrew Smith said: "This is a great leap forward for Sankey and the entire team is extremely excited to see what opportunities this deal will bring.
 
"Clearway will now be responsible for the day-to-day dispatch and delivery of all Sankey goods from Nottingham to our UK customers. Any exporting orders will continue to be handled by Sankey.

"We will maintain our warehouse operation as it is, but by using Clearway we will also have an expanded facility. The key benefit, however, of transferring distribution to Clearway is that we anticipate cutting our delivery lead time by half to three to five working days."
