Record temperatures for Europe, record dispatches for Multipanel UK

Friday 28th June 2019 was a record day in many respects.  Whilst much of Europe was baking under record temperatures, the number of dispatches from the Multipanel Distribution Centre near Dover (UK) was also soaring to record levels.

In that one day our team prepared, loaded and dispatched almost 1100 pallets which is the equivalent of 44 full truckloads of our panels.  Distribution Centre Manager, Paul Millward, said “The pressure is always high to maximise dispatches but to achieve this record level is absolutely remarkable.  Considering the huge quantity of inbound raw materials received by the team and having to cope with large scale building projects onsite at the same time, the guys worked relentlessly.   All in all we took 800 tonnes in and sent 1100 tonnes out and we’re extremely proud and grateful for the hard work and dedication shown by our DC team to make this happen. ”

Multipanel’s UK warehousing has a fully mechanised racking system with the capacity to store more than 4500 pallets, ready to be distributed to our customers in more than 60 countries on 5 continents.  In addition to the UK facility, we have 3 warehouses to keep stock on the ground in the USA and will soon be opening 2 new warehouses in mainland Europe.
