PJH invests in new distribution centres
National distributor PJH has invested in three new regional distribution centres to create significant expansion in its Next Day Delivery Service to retailers to include up to 91% coverage of UK postcodes.
The new sites in Enfield, Thirsk and Bristol offer 22,000 sq. ft, 3,000 sq. ft and 27,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space respectively, with further plans to expand the Thirsk site to 10,000 sq. ft. later this year.
The capacity offered by the new sites will enable PJH to expand its Next Day Delivery Service, which has grown considerably in recent months, as well as bringing logistical benefits such as reducing the number of deliveries out of its Cannock central hub, relieving site congestion and improving efficiency.
Brett Jenkinson, Head of Retail Customer Experience PJH, said: “The investment in these three new sites will support further growth in distribution as well as facilitate the expansion of PJH’s Next Day delivery service for in-stock items to 91% coverage of UK postcodes.
“Through the expanded capacity of our warehouses and our more regionally deployed own fleet of vehicles, benefitting northern, southern and Wales regions, we will be able to reach our customers faster.”
In addition to the Cannock distribution centre and the new Enfield, Thirsk, and Bristol sites, PJH also operates from Bolton, Worcester and Glasgow.
