Southampton-based Meachers Global Logistics has announced a new warehousing contract with Red Arrow Fulfilment.

Meachers has renewed its partnership with the Romsey-based company to provide storage facilities for products from specialist mattress company Dormeo UK.

Meachers will store mattresses for Red Arrow (Southampton Group) Ltd at a new 30,000 square feet warehouse at Southampton Docks following the new three year agreement, with the option to increase this storage capacity in June.

The move is due to Red Arrow’s continued significant growth. The company’s initial requirement of 10,000 square feet of warehousing has increased and the new warehouse berth in Southampton will store all of 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.”
