SMEG UK AWARDS CONTRACT TO APPLIANCE DELIVERY SPECIALIST, YUSEN LOGISTICS

 

Award winning appliance manufacturer Smeg UK (www.smeguk.com) has awarded Yusen Logistics UK the nationwide retail and trade distribution for their complete product range in a strategic move to support their growth plans. 

Smeg UK, renowned for their iconic Italian designs, has partnered with domestic appliance specialist Yusen Logistics (www.yusen-logistics.com) to further enhance their supply chain offering.  Yusen Logistics has designed a tailored solution specifically catered for the appliance industry, offering greater reliability and regularity of delivery, with a focus on minimising touch points and delivering a high quality service.

The entire Smeg range, from small & major domestic appliances to commercial and medical units, is handled through Yusen Logistics’ dedicated appliance crossdocking facility; where collections from Smeg UK’s warehouse are consolidated and optimised for fast onwards delivery across the UK and Ireland.  This is coupled with Yusen Logistics’ industry leading KPIs, that drive exceptional levels of service throughout the operation to deliver to the high standards Smeg UK’s customers expect. The announcement comes at a time when Smeg has also restructured its Portsmouth based warehousing operation, bringing it back in-house.
