Let our complete service give you a more competitive edge

Welcome to Boughey Distribution. If you're looking for a warehousing, distribution, consolidation or contract packing operation which you can trust to get the job done – a successful business who will work with you, rather than just for you, here's some good news

Boughey Distribution has the scale and capability to offer a total end-to-end service.

494 staff
106 articulated units
216 trailers
900,000 sq ft of warehousing

That all adds up to an operation ready and able to tackle the biggest and most complex tasks. But we are also flexible and versatile enough to modify and fine-tune our services to accommodate most businesses' requirements

We're based near Nantwich, Cheshire. So we are ideally placed to serve companies across both the North West of England and further afield, with the M6 allowing easy North/South access.

We have particular experience and expertise in the ambient grocery sector – with some of the UK's largest retailers trusting us to provide a reliable and efficient service.

In fact, our consolidation service is so seamless, hassle-free and commercially astute, we're sure it can help you keep costs to a minimum and gain a real competitive edge.

We are also members of Palletline, the UK's leading palletised distribution specialists. So more local companies, with perhaps more modest distribution requirements, can benefit from our scale and efficiencies without worrying about excessive costs.

We strongly believe that companies, whatever their size, should be able to benefit from the high standards of professionalism and reliability we bring to any business relationship.

But, of course, no two businesses are the same. Each has its own individual requirements. Which is why we are happy to work with you to identify these specific needs – then develop a unique, bespoke answer.

It's by working this way that we have become the ‘partner of choice' for so many of our customers – developing strong and mutually profitable relationships which have been in place for years.

With Boughey Distribution, you can look forward to more economically and environmentally sustainable solutions.

We are very much a people business. And we like to deal with companies who work the way we work. Openly, honestly, with a clear appreciation of exactly what's expected from both sides. That's the way we create mutually profitable business relationships.

It's also how we have grown into an award-winning, nationally recognised business – not just known for what it does, but how it does it... using all our knowledge and experience to make our customers' businesses run more smoothly and efficiently.

A clear commitment to all our customers

We believe there's a right way to handle any business situation.

And that's why we have decided to set out our commitment to our customers. That way we are being transparent; everyone can see exactly what we stand for and the service they can expect.

We are reliable: we do what we promise, when we promise.

We make your life easier: a consolidated warehousing and distribution partner should make your life simpler, not more complicated. So we make dealing with Boughey effortless. Our BougheyNET web portal offers complete visibility and if you ever have a query, there's always a real person at the end of the phone ready to talk to you.

We understand our customers' needs: no two businesses are the same, so we always acknowledge your unique needs. And take the time to understand them and develop individual solutions.

We are responsive: whether you simply require prompt, dependable deliveries or need a fully integrated logistics solution, we work quickly, accurately and in your best interest.

We use our experience to deliver better service: we are always happy to share our knowledge and expertise with our customers. And we learn from what they tell us too – that's how we adapt and improve.

We support our customers: before, during, and after every single order we always aim to deliver first rate customer service across the board.

We're delighted to say that Palletline share these values too. So becoming members seemed a very obvious and natural fit.

They are committed to working the way we do.

Innovation – making business better

We are constantly looking for new, different ways to solve industry problems.

These could offer tangible economic benefits, or answer more long-term sustainability issues. Whichever, we are happy to investigate and invest in technological solutions to drive our business, and the industry forward.

We have our own in-house IT team; responsible for the efficient day-to-day running of our financial, warehouse/stock management, order processing and reporting systems – and the development of individually tailored customer solutions.

We have launched BougheyNET, a customer web portal delivering highly accurate, real-time data 24/7 on order status and stock levels.

And our fleet is working rapidly towards Euro 6 compliance – which will, in turn, deliver significant cost reductions through greater fuel efficiency. As well as the obvious environmental benefits.
