APC Overnight has revealed more detail of the £14m hub it planning to move into at Cannock.
The 128,000 sq ft site at Kingswood Lake will open in September 2012, and will provide more than double the capacity of its existing hub at Essington near Wolverhampton.
It will be fitted out with an Interoll cross-belt sortation system. APC will also expand its hub-based trunking fleet with 50 Don-Bur EcoStream double-decker trailers.
Opus Land is project managing development at the new site.
“With the high demand for our next day deliveries, we have outgrown our existing hub in Essington. The new site at Kingswood Lake will provide us with a well-designed, state-of-the-art and very efficient national base,” said APC chief Ivor Skinner.
