Behind the always full looking supermarket shelves lies a supply chain that is both sensitive to economic and environmental factors. With the UK importing 48% of the total food consumed, Yearsley Logistics multi-site SuperHub offering is key to creating an agile, fit for purpose supply chain which the future of grocery, foodservice and manufacturing industries demand.
The £65 million investment in Peterborough, SuperHub South, provides the flexibility, accessibly and scale customers need. On completion SuperHub South will be the largest temperature controlled cold store in the UK. Peterborough’s advantage is its geographical location, adjacent to junction 17 of the A1 (M), optimising the most cost effective supply chain.
The mixed use depots which include both traditional and automated racking coupled with transportation that is not outsourced to third parties, delivers the control customers require and ability to service an ever changing market. Alongside this, their bespoke online information system NetStock, is integrated into all parts of the business providing customers with complete transparency with clear, instant updates and no delays.
Tim Moran, Managing Director, says, ‘Our customers require a logistics solution that is fit for the future and in the best location possible, thus reducing food miles travelled. Our new depot will meet individual requirements and operational needs in a safe and environmentally friendly way – adding much needed value to the supply chain.’
