Supply chain management specialist CEVA Logistics has opened a state of the art shared-user warehouse at the new iPort intermodal logistics park on the outskirts of Doncaster in the UK.
The 215,800 square foot facility includes a number of features including VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) and gravity fed racking. This enables a high density of stock to be stored via a ‘first in, first out’ system. The site can accommodate up to 28,000 pallets and as well as being adjacent to a 35 acre rail terminal, offers parking bays for 110 HGV.
The iPort facility will allow the company to provide warehousing, planning, transport, administration, customized value-added services and cross-docking functions and will begin by operating 24/6. It also includes other features such as an in-rack sprinkler system and TAPA security (Transported Asset Protection Association) to help protect stock.
“Situated at Junction 3 of the M18 motorway, iPort gives us great access to the whole of the north of the UK enabling us to receive and deliver to customers in timely fashion,” said CEVA’s executive vice president UK, Ireland and Nordics, Michael O’Donoghue.
