Brakes, the food service supplier, has awarded Norbert Dentressangle a contract to provide a consolidated distribution service for frozen products.
The operation is based at Dentressangle’s temperature controlled hub at Easton near Grantham, and involves distribution of frozen products from existing Dentressangle customers to Brakes.
Dentressangle will use its shared user network to deliver product destined for Brakes’ 25 distribution centres throughout the UK on a scheduled basis.
By delivering orders directly into Brakes’ regional distribution network from customers’ stock already stored at the Easton site, the operation removes unnecessary vehicle movements and delivers both cost savings and environmental benefits.
Guy Hanks, group commercial logistics manager for Brakes said: “Due to its existing customer profile, Norbert Dentressangle’s solution offered some compelling benefits.”
