• VOW Wholesale and Commercial team up for local causes

        • Commercial recently identified approximately 30 pallets of products that they wished to clear from the Arrow Distribution Centre. Claire Reay, VOW Account Director, agreed with Commercial to share the products, which included washroom supplies like toilet rolls and hand towels, amongst a number of worthwhile local organisations.

          With faster and more frequent product introduction, new category portfolios and the need to be optimise value through the distribution channel, a ruthless mindset is required to make sure warehouse space is being used for the right products. Previously, these pallets might have been sent to landfill, but that is no longer an acceptable solution amongst companies that put the environment and sustainability at the heart of their values and CSR policies.

          With the support of colleagues, the products were consolidated, distributed, and in some cases, personally carried and delivered to eight very grateful charities, hospices, schools and community clubs in the Leeds and Wakefield area.

          Claire said, “we are so glad that through the kindness of Commercial and the efforts of the VOW team, especially John McTigue, Jacqui Foster, Dan Rogers, and Milan Harper, we have been able to make a positive contribution to good causes in the area. The letters of thanks that we have received are absolutely heart-warming. It’s great to know that we’ve been able to make a difference and that our efforts have been appreciated.”
