The relationship originated in Belgium, UNILIN were happy with the service and asked DSV in the UK to manage their UK domestic transportation. The challenge when transporting flooring is that the cargo is not only fragile but quite often lengthy so handling the goods in the correct manor is crucial.
UNILIN required stand trailers to facilitate loading and same day collection, and next day delivery across most of the UK. In addition to UK distribution services, DSV also provide warehousing to Unilin. Deliveries are predominantly to retail stores, builders’ merchants and often to the end user, therefore the correct vehicle size and equipment must be used to accommodate the delivery site complexities.
To strengthen the partnership, both parties crafted the tailormade solution of branding a DSV vehicle to market and expose the relationship between UNILIN and DSV.
DSV also transports the UNILIN products between Sweden and Denmark and from Belgium across Europe.
We have grown confidence with DSV transporting our flooring for over 7 years now, our shared core values of Passion, Entrepreneurship, Excellence and Respect has led UNILIN to entrust DSV for this length of time.
