Founded in 1989, Panther Warehousing has grown to become a leading provider in the two-man delivery marketplace, with an unrivalled reputation which has helped cement its position as the preferred delivery partner for some of the UK’s largest best-known retailers.
Operating an ethos of best in class, we continually strive to deliver an outstanding level of service to our customers and to become a natural extension to their home delivery requirements. Our success has led to Panther being listed in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 in 2015 and 2016, being named by the London Stock Exchange as one of the top 1,000 companies to inspire Britain and included in Motor Transport’s Top 100 Companies.
A key milestone in the success of our award-winning business, which was named Large Company of the Year and won the Innovation accolades at the 2016 Northampton Logistics Awards, was the recent £17 million management buyout of Panther by mid-market private equity firm LDC – forming the road map for Panther’s further development and expansion.
Since starting on a path to reinvent itself, Panther has enjoyed a period of phenomenal growth, with turnover soaring from £5 million in 2010 to £38 million in 2016. Today delivering more than 5,000 orders a day, staff numbers too have grown substantially with Panther now boasting a workforce of more than 500 employees.
Now with a fleet of 300 vehicles, Panther delivers an extensive offering to retailers as well as the highest possible quality of service and customer satisfaction levels. With solid communications and a highly-trained customer services team, our Northampton-based call centre ensures that none of our operations are outsourced.
And ever mindful of the need to provide a ‘green’ ethical service, Panther now provides a furniture recycling service and also closely adheres to the WEEE Directive.
Every member of staff including the customer teams to the delivery drivers receives extensive training to ensure health and safety standards are maintained and the customer is guaranteed an exemplary level of service.
Panther is a tremendous success story and one which is testimony to the intuitive approach, vision and insight of those within the organisation. We are a business which never stands still and we will continue to push the boundaries and evolve to ensure we are constantly developing and diversifying our product offering to meet the needs of the marketplace.
