UPN is extending its central hub at Fradley Park, Lichfield from 120,000 sq ft to 170,000 sq ft. It said it has seen a 30 per cent increase in pallet consignments coming through the network.
Director Andrew Lowe said: “The investment in the hub, staff and equipment is essential to the whole network and demonstrates our commitment, not only to our members, but also our customers in delivering a first class service as pallet numbers increase.
“Staff numbers have also increased by ten per cent to compliment the team we already have in place. We are also investing in our forklift fleet and now have more than 40 available for the transhipment of pallets.”
