Apollo

One of the UK’s top suppliers of kitchenware products.

Apollo supply own label and bespoke kitchenware products to major supermarket chains, other major wholesalers, retailers and customers with specific needs in the kitchen, food and gift industries. The product range is constantly developing with new designs and new sources of supply. Felixstowe Warehousing handles the imported shipping containers from Asia into secure storage space adjacent to the Port of Felixstowe, the UK’s largest container port. Prompt transfer of containers from the terminal to our yard eliminates the risk of demurrage charges and accelerates the availability of stock for distribution to apollo customers.

Order picking, packing and distribution of parcels/single/ multiple pallet loads to apollo customers in UK is carried out by dedicated staff at Felixstowe Warehousing. This gives the flexibility to sell the full apollo product range in varying quantities to meet customer demand.

Apollo have eliminated the use of bubble-wrap by recycling the packaging materials used in international transit.
