B2B e-commerce shipping business wnDirect has appointed Menzies Distribution to be a supply chain provider. Menzies will collect goods from wnDirect retail customers and deliver them to processing centres in Kent and Derbyshire to be combined for export loads.
This month, Menzies will take on 12 routes, but this will be expanded to all 60 routes operated by wnDirect by the end of October.
Menzies is better known as a daily newspaper distributor and most of its operations occur at night. This move will enable its fleet to operate in daylight hours as well, increasing the utilisation of its drivers and fleet.
In turn, wnDirect sees the opportunity to work with a company used to meeting tight deadlines on multiple routes.
