The Princess Royal has opened Bibby Distribution’s 212,000 sq ft distribution hub at Max Park in Corby.
The site acts as a central hub for Bibby’s operations in the East Midlands, as well as being the second primary consolidation centre the 3PL operates on behalf of Morrisons.
The princess, who is patron of Transaid, said: “Bibby has supported Transaid for more than a decade. It is a real bonus for a charity to have that continuity of funding. The impact Bibby has made by helping Transaid to train drivers in Africa is very significant.
“Bibby has been an enormous part of the logistics industry and has helped to set high standards for the sector. Corby is well placed and well served by infrastructure and I am sure this will add to the reputation of Bibby.”
