Rhenus Home Delivery UK’s new central distribution centre, in Magna Park, Lutterworth is set to open this summer. Having undergone extensive refurbishment, the vast 258,000 sqft?space will support the home delivery specialist’s continued growth, including its next-day and JIT delivery services.
Furniture News’ Paul Farley was invited to tour the impressive facility in March, and saw first-hand how its layout would facilitate the effective and rapid movement of goods for Rhenus’ growing client roster.
“Since it entered the UK marketplace in 2017, Rhenus has made great progress, and is now the fulfilment partner of choice for a significant number of industry players,” says Paul. “It’s hard to convey the mind-blowing scale of this new addition to Rhenus’ arsenal – suffice to say, the business is anticipating huge demand for its services, and will be well placed to meet it once this facility’s up and running.”
Formerly the home of Costco and Wayfair, the centre, named Hurricane 258, has facilitated a good deal of furniture distribution over the years – and Rhenus’ investment is set to cement its status as one of the UK’s premier furniture fulfilment hubs.
