Temp building part of £1m investment
06 April 2021
CHAUCER LOGISTICS, the dedicated furniture logistics provider, has launched the first stage of its £1 million expansion programme to support its booming home delivery service across the UK.
The plans include a new warehouse at its depot in Rainham, Essex, which will take storage capacity from 180,000 sq ft to more than 250,000 sq ft. The building has been supplied by Aganto, with the build time eight days from start to finish.
“Our investment will also create many new jobs in every area of the business from new drivers to admin staff and middle managers,” said Chaucer Logistics chief executive Scott Dunn.
“The investment is in response to our growing furniture home delivery service which has expanded enormously over the last 12 months. It is a trend that shows little sign of slowing down and we must be ready to meet this demand.”
Chaucer has benefited from a growing number of soft furnishing retailers using its business to deliver direct to customer homes while at the same time more and more major manufacturers are seeing increased demand for new office furniture to be delivered to staff now working from home.
As well as furniture, Chaucer has also responded to demand from specialist kitchen and bathroom companies. These companies are delivering products in bulk to Chaucer’s main depot. These are broken down and collated into individual customer orders prior to home delivery.
Chaucer also continues to work with the emergency services to ensure that vital PPE equipment continues to reach front line staff via its national distribution network.
