New warehouse at Southampton docks to store Dormeo mattresses

A NEW warehouse at Southampton docks will be used to store Dormeo mattresses after a logistics company won a new contract. Meachers Global Logistics has renewed its partnership with Romsey-based Red Arrow Fulfilment to provide storage for products from the specialist mattress business. Meachers will store mattresses for Red Arrow (Southampton Group) Ltd at a new 30,000sqft warehouse at Southampton Docks following the new three-year agreement, with the option to increase the storage capacity in June.

The move is due to significant growth at Red Arrow. The company initially needed 10,000sqft of warehousing but its needs have increased and the new warehouse berth will store all the stock. Red Arrow managing director Nicholas Gebbett said: “We are delighted to have renewed our warehousing logistics contract with Meachers.

“The new storage berth is a real bonus and even with only part of the space available initially, we have already seen a massive increase in our efficiency. “We are looking forward to working with Meachers on accessing the remainder of the space and consolidating all of our storage requirements for Dormeo UK into one building in the coming months.” Meachers commercial director Gary Whittle said: “Meachers Global Logistics is pleased to be continuing our partnership with Red Arrow Fulfilment as they anticipate significant commercial growth in the coming years.

“The new warehousing site in Southampton Docks represents a real investment that will allow Red Arrow to expand and Meachers is delighted to be working with them on the storage logistics and keep its supply chain thriving in the years ahead.”

Independent business Meachers has spent more than 60 years providing freight forwarding, supply chain management, warehousing and distribution.
