Zest 4 Leisure, a leading trade supplier of quality timber garden products including furniture, arches, arbours and fencing, has appointed P&O Ferrymasters for its UK-wide deliveries for 2019, underpinning its commitment to customer service.
One of the leading UK distributors, P&O Ferrymasters has a wealth of experience spanning 65 years plus of delivering within the UK, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and internationally. The company prides itself on increasing efficiency and improving transit times for its customers.
Commenting on the deal, Steve Morgan, Zest 4 Leisure Managing Director said:
“We are delighted to be working with P&O Ferrymasters. This deal will enable us to harness their experience and expertise to ensure our demanding customer service standards are not just met but also exceeded. Crucially, the company has a significant amount of haulage available which will allow us to easily step up to seasonal demands, particularly during the critical peak periods.
“This year we are totally committed to getting it right for our customers. 2018 proved to be a challenging year due to the move to the new nine-acre warehouse and distribution centre and the installation of the site’s new business system. In hindsight, we may not have chosen to do that, however, it has set us up to be able to get personnel and procedures in place in total readiness for 2019.”
In addition to appointing P&O Ferrymasters, Zest 4 Leisure has invested significant sums of money into the infrastructure at Saltney including warehousing and storage areas and improved the traffic flow system around the site to deal with the significant increase in wagon deliveries.
“We are committed to moving on from last year and getting it right for our customers throughout 2019. This new appointment of P&O Ferrymasters, combined with the improvements we have made, means that we can provide better support to our customers and ensure there is no dip in service levels during periods of high demand.”
Zest 4 Leisure is gearing up to showcase its quality timber garden furniture range at this year’s Solex on stand 310.
