Cormar’s Delivery Fleet Expands

With over 3,000 carpet deliveries to carpet shops in Britain each week, Cormar Carpets run a highly intensive nationwide carpet delivery operation using specially designed, demountable ‘swap’ body trucks for efficiency and flexibility.

Every year UK carpet sales increase over the Autumn, as households re-decorate in time for Christmas. So in preparation, Cormar Carpets strengthened their fleet with 14 new DAF trucks and 10 swap bodies in September.  In total six new 18 tonne drawbar units and ten swap bodies were purchased to support the out-base depots, with another eight vehicles which included a new spec 18 tonne fixed body rigid, added to support the two new cross-dock operations.

 
The vans are built to the new Euro 6 specification, making them the latest in vehicle technology and ensuring Cormar operates the cleanest and most eco-friendly vehicles.
 
Gary Mitchell Cormar’s Logistics Manager commented “Building our own nationwide delivery fleet has become an important part of our offering to independent local carpet shops, differentiating us from many of our competitors, and earning us a reputation as one of the speediest and most reliable delivery services around.”
 
It was over three decades ago that Cormar decided to make delivering quality carpets, door-to-door to retailers, part of its service. Now from its Bury, Lancashire base, it delivers carpets right across the UK direct from site and through 25 additional outbases, strategically located to offer an average 48 hour nationwide turnaround service to customers.
 

All Cormar wool carpet and polypropylene carpet ranges are manufactured in the UK on site at its Lancashire mills and distributed to carpet shops throughout Britain and Ireland via its own delivery fleet. Order your free carpet samples today to find your perfect new carpet.
