Hoover Candy partners with Yusen Logistics to support independents

Hoover Candy UK has teamed up with Yusen Logistics to provide “the best possible service” to its independent retail customers.

Deliveries across Hoover’s freestanding, built-in and SDA divisions will be made during opening hours, from 9am-5pm, with Yusen offering hands-on support at each outlet.

The service also features haulage of mixed loads, handling laundry, cooking, cooling and floorcare appliances from the company’s warehouse in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales.

It will also offer flexibility and scalability for Hoover to allow for future growth in volumes.

Said John Pugh (pictured right), operations director at Hoover Candy: “This new operation forms a key part of our drive to be the supplier of choice to our retail customers. Based on their feedback, we’ve worked with Yusen to create a new and improved supply chain solution.

“We hope that this, coupled with the quality of our award-winning, innovative products, will provide a strong platform for further growth in the independent sector.”

Yusen Logistics commercial director Nick Rees (left) added: “We have been delivering to the independent trade for 20 years now and it’s great to announce our partnership with Hoover and to help them provide a fantastic service to retailers.

“We’ve worked extremely hard to understand the specialist needs of independents, such as clarity of delivery information, reliable deliveries at convenient times and support onsite, so we hope our work will have a positive impact on both Hoover’s logistics and customer service.”
