Yearsley Logistics is to begin work on a 150,000 pallet cold store in Peterborough in September.
The facility, which is to be the biggest temperature controlled depot in the UK, will cost £65 million and is set to generate 420 jobs. The site is to include a fully automated 35-meter high bay crane store.
“We are all very excited about building this fantastic new facility, which yet again shows our long term commitment to the UK frozen food sector,” said Tim Moran, sales director, Yearsley Logistics. “Over the past 12 months we have seen unprecedented demand from customers for our logistics services.”
