Smeg UK awards contract to appliance delivery specialist

Smeg UK has awarded Yusen Logistics UK the nationwide retail and trade distribution for its complete product range in a move to support its growth plans.

Smeg UK, renowned for its iconic Italian designs, has partnered with domestic appliance specialist Yusen Logistics to enhance its supply chain offering. Yusen Logistics has designed a tailored solution specifically catered for the appliance industry, offering greater reliability and regularity of delivery, with a focus on minimising touch points and delivering a high quality service.

The full Smeg range, from small & major domestic appliances to commercial and medical units, is handled through Yusen Logistics’ dedicated appliance cross-docking facility; where collections from Smeg UK’s warehouse are consolidated and optimised for fast onward delivery across the UK and Ireland. The announcement comes as Smeg has restructured its Portsmouth based warehousing operation, bringing it back in-house.

Mike Giddings, managing director for Smeg UK, commented: “This is an important step for us as we look to enhance and expand our service offering. Yusen Logistics has a proven track record for delivering premium brands at premium service levels in the appliance industry, and we have already seen improvement in the operation which we look forward to continuing.”
