BHS selects Kuehne Nagel for furniture deliveries

To support the expansion of its homeware

business in the United Kingdom, multi-channel retailer BHS

has chosen global logistics provider Kuehne Nagel to provide

delivery of furniture to customers' homes.

Kuehne Nagel has over twenty years experience in furniture home

deliveries operating its own shared-user furniture distribution network

supported by highly trained crews and first-class IT systems. Under the

new agreement with BHS, Kuehne Nagel will provide goods receipt

from manufacturers and storage at its shared-user facility at Dove

Valley, Derbyshire, and a "white-glove" delivery and assembly service

direct to customers. On behalf of BHS, Kuehne + Nagel will also

manage call centre activities to handle customer service including

the booking of delivery days and times.

James Irons, BHS' Head of Trading for Homestores said: "For our

home deliveries of furniture we needed a logistics partner that could

offer both the capacity to handle our growing volumes and the highest

standards of customer care. Kuehne Nagel's wealth of expertise in

this area and its ability to provide a nationwide service were also

deciding factors."

Mick Church, Kuehne + Nagel's Business Unit Director for Home

Delivery, comments: "Kuehne + Nagel's specialist teams understand

that with every home delivery we represent our customer. We are

committed to supporting BHS with the highest levels of quality and

innovation at this exciting time in the development of their home

furnishings business."
