Distribution services

At Fowler Welch, our dedicated transport team continuously delivers innovative and effective solutions to customers’ transport problems.

Day 1 for Day 1 Consolidation

With our consolidation services, you get:

A reliable and flexible day one for day one service

Added value through consolidation, regardless of business size

Expertise and experience that offers the highest quality service


Flexibility to meet demand throughout seasonal peaks and promotional periods

Our reputation for performance excellence in the temperature controlled FMCG supply chain is both well-earned and scrupulously maintained, as our customers are at the heart of everything that we do.

We have continued to prove our ability to deliver added value by grouping together consignments from multiple suppliers for onward delivery to shared customers. This has become a major contributor to the efficiency of customers’ supply chains and means customers moving smaller consignments are able to remain competitive.

In a shifting retail landscape, consolidation makes increasing economic sense for any manufacturer, supplier or grower. Our expertise and flexibility in this area, along with our highly experienced team, means that time and time again, major names and smaller suppliers rely on Fowler Welch to handle their shipments.

We know lead times are vital to running an efficient supply chain, and our customers know they can rely on our people to deliver a day one for day one service that is completely reliable yet impressively flexible.

Alongside this, we are very much aware that your operation is unique with its own set of specific requirements. Our ethos of listening, responding and delivering means we offer every customer, from major UK-wide retailers to start-up businesses, a high quality, cost-effective service.

By collaborating in this way, you can be sure that every day of the year our teams are working with all the major UK retailers, wholesalers and independents; co-ordinating collections, managing orders and re-loading to meet collection and delivery schedules, even holding stock if necessary to meet later load schedules or different destination demands.

We Thrive on providing excellent services

Our customers are at the heart of our business. Every business we work with is unique, so they are treated that way and we pride ourselves on finding innovative solutions for each of our clients’ needs.

For some suppliers, the sheer scale of their operations means that a dedicated supply chain programme must be put in place in order to provide an efficient, high quality service on a daily basis.

Our colleagues are experts in this area as we have a number of individual depots and teams made available as dedicated points of contact for specific customers.

This means that we can provide the closest possible working relationship with customers, positioning ourselves as almost indistinguishable from their existing teams.

We put the right people in the right places, delivering total account management from planning, to order assembly, through to on-time distribution and proof of delivery.

Raw Materials Distribution

Our team is skilled and proficient in managing a huge range of products for distribution to simplify the supply chain and increase production
space. Liaising with your internal and external hauliers to provide booking slots for incoming vehicles eliminates the need for an inbound vehicle planner.

We use state-of-the-art technology to track and analyse the data through your SAP system and our own Manhattan system to record quantity, weight, best before end date and batch code, removing the need for a stock controller.
