Under the contract, Yusen will use its domestic appliance network to deliver Hoover’s complete range of products to customers from its Merthyr Tydfil warehouse, where cross-docking service will be provided.

“We hope that this, coupled with the quality of our award winning, innovative products, will provide a strong platform for growth in the independent sector.”

Yusen Logistics commercial director Nick Rees said: “We have been delivering to the independent trade for 20 years now. We have worked extremely hard to understand the specialist needs of the independent retailer, such as clarity of delivery information, reliable deliveries at convenient times and support onsite.”
