Second Cross Dock Location for Cormar Carpets


Updated. 17.October.2014

Second Cross Dock Bristol

To further support growth in retail sales and meet forecasted order demand in the South West of England, UK carpet producer Cormar Carpets, has opened its second cross-dock distribution centre in Bristol.

The opening of the second cross-dock distribution centre follows on from the success of its Northampton operation, opened last year. The new operation sits alongside existing outbase depots, providing additional support to current facilities within the loading bay and cut-lengths department at Cormar’s Brookhouse Mill in Greenmount Bury, which have seen increasing volumes over the last 18 months.

 

Customer carpet orders are loaded in bulk on 44ft trailers in Bury to then trunk to Bristol overnight, unload and finally reload the carpets onto individual local delivery routes.

 

Said Craig Marshall, head of order channels and logistics at Cormar Carpets: “Our logistics partners will run the operation out of our existing outbase site in Portbury, near Bristol. It will be capable of handling 15% of our current volume through a night loading team and eight delivery vehicles, with drivers operating from the site.

  

“Going forward we are looking at opening two more outbase facilities as well as three additional next day collections points for carpet retailers customers.”

 

All Cormar wool 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.
