As an exceptionally busy distribution company operating in today’s superfast supply chain, what we require from our partners is 100% reliability and with Whistl this is exactly what we get. Their collections from us are always at the agreed time slot and, with very few exceptions, our orders are delivered to our end customers on time.  Our relationship with Whistl, through our very efficient account manager, is excellent and we would certainly recommend Whistl to other companies and in fact recently we did, and they have already switched!
