Online home and garden furniture designer Out & Out has joined forces with two-person delivery specialist Panther Logistics to scale its delivery offering in preparation for further growth.
As demand is set to increase for outdoor furniture over the coming months, Out & Out has appointed Panther as its sole two-person delivery provider, enabling them to offer a faster delivery service to their customers across the UK as well as delivery to room of choice.
Panther will be collecting Out & Out stock as it arrives into port and holding it at their brand-new 225,000sqft warehousing facility in Swindon, from which they will be managing the entire fulfilment operation on behalf of the fast-expanding online retailer.
Established in 2013, Out and Out initially specialised in unique furniture. The company has since extended its range of home and garden furniture to further broaden its appeal with its ethically sourced ratan dining and lounge sets being the most popular.
Celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year, Out & Out is now taking its final mile delivery offering to the next level by partnering with Panther – a company which has extensive experience in the home and outdoor furniture sector.
This experience, according to Samuel Scott, Sales Director at Panther Group, gives the business confidence that it will not only become a positive brand ambassador to the online furniture retailer, but will help Out & Out achieve its ambitious growth plans over the coming years.
Samuel Scott commented: “We are delighted to be working with Out & Out, a business which has ambitious plans to drive forward its growth over the coming years by providing its customers with a seamless and efficient delivery offering.
“Upon meeting with Out & Out we quickly found that we both had a synergetic understanding of why placing the customer at the heart of a business was vital to achieving long term success.
“Our end-to-end warehousing, fulfilment and delivery solution has enabled Out and Out to further streamline its operations and provide its much-valued customers with the ultimate final mile delivery experience.”
Out & Out’s Founder Daniel Fairburn said: “Following our first meeting with Panther we recognised that they ticked a number of boxes, especially with regard to our ability to grow with them and the fact they had the capacity to handle our entire delivery, warehousing and fulfilment requirements.
“Over the years the business has evolved to meet the needs of the modern-day consumer and scaling our delivery offering to ensure it met those demands was fundamental to our growth plans.
“This year is a milestone year for us with it being the 10th anniversary – and with further growth predicted on the horizon, including establishing a TikTok shop, we wanted to mark this occasion by entering a new and exciting chapter through expanding our delivery process in order to take the company to the next level.”
