Fullers Logistics has finger on the pulse for Katsouris Brothers
Fullers Logistics, a specialist multi-channel fulfilment and distribution services provider based in the south of England, has announced today that it is providing fulfilment and warehousing services to Katsouris Brothers Ltd., an established supplier of food produce to the manufacturing, wholesale and retail market.

“After being let down by our previous logistics supplier, we had an urgent need to find a trusted partner that we could work with to store a wide range of pulses and grains that we import from South America and across Europe,” explains company director, Alexander Katsouris. “It became clear after launching a competitive tender process towards the end of summer, that Fullers were the best fit for our specific requirements. We carried out an initial trial with them and were really happy with the level of service provided and their attention to detail.”

20ft. containers of bagged pulses arrive at Fullers where they are unloaded and stored on pallets in a multi-user, ambient warehouse facility. “We currently hold around 300 pallets of stock for Katsouris Brothers in our new facility in Bordon, Hampshire,” comments Tony Dempsey, Divisional Managing Director at Fullers Logistics. “As we already work with a number of household names in the food production industry, we were in a unique position to offer Katsouris Brothers a flexible warehouse solution, that can be rapidly scaled up or down to meet demand, but also to provide an environment which is HACCP compliant and conforms to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).”

A quality assurance manager within the Fullers team is aligned to Katsouris Brothers to ensure that the correct processes were set up and are followed for receiving, storage and onward shipment of the pulses, minimising the risk of product contamination. “Orders of varying quantities, placed by wholesalers and manufacturers are received by Katsouris Brothers in the first instance before being passed to us via an integrated warehouse management system,” continues Dempsey. “Once orders have been picked and packed by one of our team, they are either shipped directly to the end client or despatched to Katsouris Brothers’ central operation in Wembley to arrive the next day.”

Alexander Katsouris concludes, “We are really pleased to have developed a successful partnership with Fullers Logistics for this part of our operation. Our business has always had a firm passion for quality, value for money and excellent customer service. We make every effort to maintain these standards as we grow our family business and Fullers are helping us to achieve this on every level.”
