Pooling Partners extends contract with Jeyes in UK and Ireland
Coventry, UK, April 2, 2017 – Pooling Partners, Europe’s largest combined pallet manufacturer and pooler, has extended its UK and Ireland contract with household cleaning specialist Jeyes Group.
The renewal, which utilises Pooling Partners’ ‘Trade Direct’ concept, will allow the manufacturer of Easy, Kleenoff, Quickies and private label goods to optimise its supply chain by guaranteeing deliveries, reducing costs and minimising its carbon footprint via fewer truck movements.
In extending the contract, Jeyes Group, a Royal Warrant holder for more than 100 years with an international presence, recognises its supply chain as a means to deliver competitive advantage.
The savings are based upon a collaborative approach and reaffirms Jeyes decision to re-evaluate its supplier partnerships.
Steve Randall, logistics manager at Jeyes Group, said: “As an expanding international brand, we are constantly reviewing the way we do business to make sure that we are optimising efficiencies. That is especially the case in the supply chain, which can deliver real and financial commercial advantage.
“You may have the best products in the world but failure to leverage your supply chain to deliver greater efficiencies and drive down costs, will be reflected in the product price and the shelf point. Working with good suppliers enables us to avoid this scenario.
“Pooling Partners has demonstrated its ability to work with us to manage our product flows more effectively as part of a transparent partnership.
“We have continued to see an upward trend in quality assurance through effective account management and this trend is set to continue with mutually agreed targets over the next few years.”
Phil Storer, director for Pooling Partners, said: “Household names require robust supply chain management – it is part of their brand DNA of getting the right product to the right place at the right time, and the right price. Jeyes is synonymous with cleaning products for the home and garden and the renewed solution we have worked with them to deliver polish to its supply chain.
“Like our many FMCG clients, Jeyes continues to be able to order and manage its pallet requirements easily via the epallet partner portal, a user-friendly online ordering system. With 24-hour reporting, the group has reaffirmed its commitment to uninterrupted service and growth.”
