When One Distribution Hub Is Not Enough
- Published: Friday, 23 May 2014 15:11
After a thorough review of its European business, Fibox has made the decision to invest in a second logistics hub to help them optimise delivery times and, in turn, their overall efficiency.
Together with the company’s existing European hub in Germany, and existing facilities in Poland, the new warehouse will be based in Turku, Finland to support the burgeoning demand in Scandinavia for Fibox standard products, in particular the new ARCA range of wall mounting cabinets which is already exceeding sales expectations in Europe.
Steve Gallon, MD of Fibox Ltd in the UK commented “The establishment of our new delivery hub in Finland is testimony to the confidence we have in our growing business in Scandinavia and recognition of the need to service our customers there efficiently and with flexibility. It also enables the company to increase efficiency as they move into new territories and markets and gives Fibox the ideal platform to concentrate on and strengthen our delivery service level in central and southern Europe and especially to our UK customers”.
“Our company is growing, with ambitious plans in place for the medium and long term, and in order to support this we needed to ensure our distribution infrastructure is robust enough to maintain the service levels our European customers demand and receive”.
The ramp up process is well underway and it is expected that the new hub will be fully operational by the end of July 2014.
