• Glass Glover Distribution is set to go national next February with its flower and plant distribution operation 'Howerflow'.
It will operate from three distribution centres, at Luton, Rotherham and Edinburgh, with a satellite operation at Chepstow to service the South-West. A fleet of 15 vehicles will service the operation.
Temperature-controlled premises will be used at each distribution centre, and John Adamson, Glass Glover Distribution's managing director, will not identify Flowerflow's customers, but says: "At least two leading companies will be involved, though the final deci sion has not yet been made."
The decision to launch Flowerflow follows a successful trial of a plant and flower distribution service called Bloemfresh, based in Windsor. "We are changing the company name from Bloemfresh to Flowerflow to reflect the emphasis of product movement rather than supply," says Adamson.
El Glass Glover Distribution has also won a contract from North West Vintners for the distribution of beers, wines, spirits and cigarettes. The contract involves servicing Kwik Save stores in South Wales and the south-west of England to agreed timed deliveries.
