Pets at Home has selected two-man delivery specialists Panther Logistics so it can offer a next day service for larger products such as rabbit hutches and dog cages.
Northamptonshire-based Panther has rapidly expanded in recent years as clients have reaped the commercial benefit of being able to offer flexible deliveries, including a seven-day-a-week delivery, which is being provided to Pets at Home.
All deliveries will be collected out of Pets at Home’s distribution centre in Swan Valley, Northampton for the next morning.
Samuel Scott, Panther’s head of sales and marketing, said: “Pets at Home is one of the UK’s best known and respected brands in the pet and retail space and we are delighted to assist in scaling their delivery capabilities following the reliance on online shopping.
“We see ourselves as an extension to its customer service offering and look forward to helping Pets at Home provide a flexible and professional delivery service.”
Sam Farhall, Pets at Home’s head of digital operations, added: “We are always looking at ways we can improve our customer offer. We’re pleased to be working with Panther to offer a specialist two-person delivery service, which will provide a new and easy option for customers who purchase larger products.”
