ArrowXL, the UK’s leading two-person home delivery expert, has secured a long-term contract to provide a range of flexible warehousing and home delivery services to DG International, the global logistics firm. This agreement will see ArrowXL support DG International as it embarks on the next stage of its growth.
Under the terms of the deal, ArrowXL will provide suitable warehouse space for two of DG International’s retail clients, both of whom specialise in large indoor and outdoor furniture, as well as processing and fulfilling home deliveries. As part of the contract, they will also provide consumers with its Platinum service, which includes a diary booking service, installation and/or assembly of furniture and removal of packaging. Approximately 30 of DG International’s containers will arrive at ArrowXL’s facility in Wigan each week, whilst the company’s two-person crews expect to fulfil around 250 weekly deliveries.
ArrowXL recently completed work on a £1.7m high bay pallet racking system at its warehouse in Wigan, which doubled the capacity. The 15-metre-high racking incorporates 17,000 pallet spaces and features upgraded flooring, state-of-the-art lighting installations and sprinkler systems for fire prevention.
DG International handles in excess of 25,000 consignments each year, working closely with a global network of partners throughout China, India, the Middle East, USA, Japan, Australia and South Africa. The company also handles more than 12,000 tons of export airfreight and 8,000 tons of import airfreight to over 120 cities around the world every year.
Reid Fairbairn, Business Manager at DG International, said: “We have been massively impressed with ArrowXL and how quickly they responded to our needs with a range of comprehensive solutions. By launching this partnership, we know we are in safe hands, and therefore our team can concentrate on growing our business.”
Adam Jones, Director of Sales at ArrowXL, said: “By offering both high specification warehousing space and award-winning delivery products, we are supporting retailers, manufacturers and logistics companies with tailored solutions
