Hughes Electrical, voted by which? magazine readers in 2010 as having the second best electrical website (www.hughesdirect.co.uk), is one the country's fastest growing business to-business suppliers and the fourth largest specialist electrical supplier.
Yodel was selected by Hughes Electrical to deliver items, from small sized personal digital goods to large kitchen appliances to its nationwide customer base.

Yodel will carry 125,000 deliveries each year for Hughes.
Simon Cox, Hughes Direct's General Manager said: "We had heard lots of positive things about Yodel so decided to invite them to tender for our business. Throughout our negotiations the management team were nothing but professional. If we needed any reassurance that we had made the right decision a quick look at the list of existing customers gave us all the reassurances we needed. Since we started working with Yodel, thousands upon thousands of parcels have now been delivered on our behalf and we know that we have made the right choice."
Yodel Chief Executive Jonathan Smith said: "Hughes Electrical is a great company that is well respected by its clients. We are proud to work with them. The multiple delivery options we offer mean that we can meet the range of products they send to their customers every day across the country."
