NYK Logistics is supporting the growth of Dobbies Garden Centres’ ecommerce business by expanding the internet fulfilment operation it provides for www.dobbies.com, the retailer’s online garden centre.
Dobbies has branched out from its original base in Scotland and now operates 26 garden centres nationwide. It has outlets as far south as Shepton Mallet, Milton Keynes and Ashford and has widened its scope further online. NYK’s expanded fulfilment service builds on the end-to-end supply chain that it already supplies to Dobbies.
The new operation will also include stock intake, storage and order picking of internet stock-keeping units as well as preparation for dispatch by nominated carriers. It will help Dobbies improve its geographic reach and stockholding while providing significant IT benefits. By using NYK for this service, Dobbies benefits from the established team and IT infrastructure already in place at NYK’s Glasgow distribution centre.
NYK’s Glasgow operation is well established and has vast experience in handling a wide variety of products an
d providing nationwide distribution.
