Fowler Welch plans to maximise capacity at Dairy Crest NDC

Dairy Crest and Fowler Welch have officially launched a ten-year multi-million-pound partnership for storage and logistics at the dairy company’s national distribution centre.
Fowler Welch has taken over transport operations at Dairy Crest’s NDC at Bermuda Park, Nuneaton. It is also working with Dairy Crest to maximise the capacity of the site as a strategic chilled foods storage and distribution facility for manufacturers and retailers throughout the Midlands. In addition, part of the NDC will continue to be used for Dairy Crest’s Cathedral City and Country Life brands.
The site is equipped with automated put-away and retrieval systems and with 12,000 pallet locations has capacity for a throughput of 70 million cases a year.
* Fowler Welch has increased its fleet of moving floor double-deck trailers to 18 with the purchase of eight new trailers. The trailers, which have been built by The Cartwright Group, have a capacity of 44 pallets, with 36 at 1.8 metres and eight at 3.1 metres.
