DHL Supply Chain has opened a new multi-user, multi-purpose 11-acre warehouse in Avonmouth in Bristol.
The regional distribution centre features a choice of storage conditions that include 120,000 sq ft of ambient chambers and 35,000 sq ft of temperature-controlled sheds, including frozen, chilled and fixed temperature chambers.
The RDC will service customers’ South West operations and also includes facilities for electric vehicles, such as charging points.
Ian Clough, managing director, network logistics and transport, UK and Ireland for DHL Supply Chain, said: “We know that our customers are looking for new solutions to drive efficiencies and reduce their supply chain costs.
What’s more, our research shows that 75% of transport managers in believe that urbanisation is a growing trend set to impact business over the next two years. With this new state of the art facility at Avonmouth, we’re rising to that challenge. The multi-user, multi-purpose proposition offers strategic and financial benefits for businesses that are open to fresh ideas and trying a new way of doing things.”
