NFT completes £16m expansion at Daventry

Chilled logistics firm NFT has completed its £16m investment in its flagship Daventry depot.

The investment is part of the firm’s strategy to provide a shared-user network.

The final phase concluded this week, and included a £2m expansion project, which has added a new 120,000 ft sq chill store to the site.

This extension takes the site’s capacity to 20,000 pallets within 200,000 sq ft, equating to space for some 40m SKUs of typical retail pre-packed chilled products.

The peak throughput to date has been some 1.5- 2m cases a week, with a stockholding capacity of 10,000-12,000 pallets. This equates to an average of 20m products going through its Daventry network per week.

It also has a specialist -1°C facility, which is located in a separate chamber within the facility to maximise picking and transport efficiencies.
