Roper Rhodes experiences record-breaking service speeds due to recent distribution investment

Roper Rhodes is experiencing record-breaking service speeds after investing in its operational infrastructure and consolidating its warehouse space into a single, state-of-the-art facility.

The family-owned business, whose brands consist of Roper Rhodes, Laura Ashley, R2, Tavistock and Trade, invested £8m in its new national distribution centre, which became fully operational in April 2017. This saw the company consolidate all its existing warehouse space – previously split across a number of locations – into a 200,000sqft facility. The 14,000-pallet warehousing space, two shift system and a stock-holding of £10.5m, have meant the business has been able to increase efficiency and process more daily orders than ever before.

Roper Rhodes Ltd’s Marketing Director, Simon Taylor, said: “We’re thrilled that the investment in our national distribution centre is already benefitting our customers. It has enabled us to increase efficiency and has positioned us to be best in market for customer service.”
