The warehouse is expected to become operational in Janaury, and adds to the firms existing 80,000 sq ft distribution centre at the site.
Farrall’s will also be re-locating its PalletForce depot from Ashton to the new Deeside warehouse. The move is expected to save two hours a day for each of the vehicles dedicated to PalletForce operations and adds over 10,000 sq ft of covered space and 20,000 sq ft of yard space.
Mike Farrall says: “The new Deeside warehouse is a major investment for Farrall’s Transport. Moving our PalletForce depot from Ashton to Deeside places us much closer to our customer base, which allows us to offer a greatly enhanced service, with later cut-off times for collection and earlier delivery times.”
The Deeside warehouse is connected to the national motorway network via the M56 and M6, and us approximately 30 minutes from Liverpool Docks and the new Liverpool SuperPort, due to open in 2015.
“Port centric logistics has started to gather pace as a supply chain strategy and a growing number of retailers and manufacturers are now looking to store goods and undertake logistics activities close to the port of entry,” added Farrall. “Being within half an hour’s run of Liverpool’s new SuperPort places Farrall’s in a strong position to tap into this developing market when the port opens in 2015.”
