Bookies’ Safe Bet On Menzies Distribution
One of the UK’s leading logistics companies has bagged a major contract delivering betting slips to two of the biggest bookmakers in the country.
Menzies Distribution sealed agreements to deliver betting slips for Coral and Ladbrokes’ across their UK branches, marking notable wins for the company in a new sector.
As a third party logistics partner to Citipost, Menzies Distribution is using its extensive network of warehouses and vehicle fleet to deliver 200 million betting slips per year to 1800 shops.
Grant Jordan, supply chain manager at Menzies Distribution, said: “Supplying two of the largest bookmakers in the UK is a significant step for us, as we increase our customer base in the general logistics market.
“These betting slips are the lifeblood of a bookmaker’s shop and neither Coral nor Ladbrokes were prepared to take a gamble with their delivery service. As the company behind the biggest, most complex overnight logistics operation in the UK, we have unrivalled expertise in high street distribution and were the natural choice of provider.
“Using our fleet of 2,600 vehicles and established network of warehouses and hubs, we’re aiming to help businesses of all shapes and sizes move goods from one place to another as effectively, safely and quickly as possible.”
