Baylis abandons distribution for logistics in rebranding

Baylis Distribution has re-branded the company as Baylis Logistics. Managing director Thomas van Mourik said: “Over the past 10-years, because of general pressures from the supermarket multiples, there has been an increasing trend for customers to work with multi-user logistics companies.”

Phil Shaw, business development director at Baylis, adds: “We have set our sights on working with food, drink and FMCG manufacturers, sales agents or importers that are looking for a high quality operation that offers a range of value added services, from primary distribution through co-packing to final delivery.”

Baylis has over a million sq ft (93,000 sq m) of warehousing space across a group of seven distribution centres throughout the UK. These and the new investments in transport infrastructure offer a shared-user network that provides daily deliveries to all the leading supermarket chains, convenience stores, retailers and wholesalers.
