CEVA Logistics, one of the worlds leading supply chain management companies, has been awarded a contract with Alstons Cabinets, a manufacturer and assembler of high quality cabinets. Under the contract, CEVA will manage all direct home deliveries for Alstons Cabinets, making 300 deliveries per week throughout the UK and Ireland.
Alstons furniture is available in the UK from a number of major furniture outlets, many of whom demand that Alstons provide a Direct Home Delivery (DHD) Service. Alstons Cabinets makes all furniture to order, manufacturing items following orders placed in store or online. Following production, Alstons Cabinets are supported by CEVA who manage the final home delivery.
Once the furniture is manufactured, Alstons deliver the finished goods from their manufacturing plant in Ipswich to a CEVA distribution centre in Northampton. CEVA, having contacted the customer to arrange a convenient delivery date, then deliver the items to the customers home via its home delivery network. CEVA provide a premium white glove home delivery service to the customers room of choice.
Trevor Daldry of Alstons comments The direct home delivery service is working extremely well for Alstons. Through this service we are confident that our customers and products are receiving the quality home delivery service they deserve.
CEVAs direct home delivery solution bypasses the retailers supply chain, reducing costs for the retailer and Alstons, explains Nick Cullen, Managing Director, CEVA Logistics UK & Ireland. Our home delivery network is handling increasing volumes of Direct Home Delivery furniture and we are delighted to add Alstons Cabinets to our growing client portfolio.
