The warehousing is set to take place at Knowles’ new 270,000 sq ft distribution centre in Wisbech, which opened in January. According to the company, warehouse layout and racking has been purpose built for The Silver Spoon Company.

“Reducing road miles and benefitting from a swift, efficient and flexible supply chain are important factors for The Silver Spoon Company,” said Silver Spoon logistics chief Paul Jaggard. “Knowles Transport offered this alongside a clear understanding of our requirements and the ability to deliver a range of warehousing and distribution services.”

Alex Knowles, commercial director at Knowles Transport, said: “Our operational flexibility and alternative distribution models, which help to reduce mileage and increase efficiency, were key factors in The Silver Spoon Company’s decision to work with us. Over the past five years our ability to offer bespoke commercial and operational offerings has evolved significantly and we are confident of continued growth in the FMCG sector.”
