The Hub

Building the Hub

Our 400,000sq ft custom-designed pallet distribution Hub is so big that it could house eight football pitches… or 1,736 double deck buses end to end.

It was carefully planned over two years and during its construction, 15,000 m3 concrete, 1,320 tonnes of steel, 46,000 m3 cladding and 6,600 m3 of tarmac were used.

Now the Hub is one of the biggest in Europe with 330 lorry spaces and parking for over 200 cars.

It is packed with the latest technology including:

  • Forklift equipment that is unique to the sector with every forklift truck able to scan and calculate pallet weights to ensure ‘smart’ loading.
  • Six dock levellers for taking container-loads.
  • Axle weighing and scanning equipment – which allows pallets to be unloaded and weighed on the same movement.
  • Scanning to capture top and bottom weight for even distribution of double deck trucks.

 

“Pallet deliveries to the Hub are carried out with exacting precision to ensure fast turnaround times, and complete trackability. Customers are able to see critical information and management details that allow them to better manage their business.”
