Nationwide carpet distribution


RDL offers a nationwide carpet distribution network, serviced by its own fleet of specialist carpet delivery vehicles. These vehicles deliver cut lengths, rolls and rugs, and are fitted with specialist carpet handling equipment to assist the delivery.

Carpet product is collected directly from the manufacturers, either in Europe or in the UK. It is then unloaded at the RDL sites and scanned into stock via the product bar code. Carpets are stored in specialist carpet racking until required for picking and loading onto the designated vehicle for delivery to the end user. 60% of rolls and cuts are delivered on a next day basis, with the remainder delivered within 3 days on a named day basis.

The entire process utilises product bar codes, which allow RDL to provide the customer with the following automated, Internet-accessible services:

  • Full stock traceability from point of receipt, through to final delivery.
  • On-line Stock Reports, including collections and returned product.
  • Full consignment tracking, including signature access in real-time.
  • Automated Key Performance Indicator reports, downloadable or e-mailed as required.
