Habitat secures delivery provider
13 November 2019
Iconic home furnishings brand Habitat has signed a two-year contract with Panther Warehousing, the two-man, white glove delivery specialist.
The partnership was forged in the wake of Habitat being bought by Sainsbury’s. Panther has worked closely with Habitat and its growing online business to meet the challenges of delivering bulky items to customers across the UK in both urban and rural environments.
Panther delivers all Habitat orders weighing more than 31 kilograms or are bulky enough to require two-man delivery.
Customers are kept in the loop, with a confirmatory text message the day before delivery and on the day, they will be advised of a two-hour delivery slot and told which number they are on their delivery team’s schedule for the day. A track and trace system will also enable them to see where the delivery van is on its route shown on a map of their area.
