Londis invests £4m in fresh expansion

15 July, 2011

Londis is investing £4m to expand its fresh food business this year, including giving the entire Londis fleet full chilled capacity for the first time.

This new fleet will further maximise fresh flow-through, speeding up the journey from manufacturer to depot, to shop, and ensure that retailers capitalise on shelf life, minimise wastage and manage their fresh offering effectively.

The multi-million pound 72-piece fleet offers a sound and ecological investment for Londis and completes the replacement of the 400-strong fleet operated by Musgrave Retail Partners GB for its Londis and Budgens stores.

Musgrave partnered with Mercedes Benz for the tractors and rigid vehicles, which have the latest and most environmentally friendly Euro 5 compliant engines, meeting stringent emission standards and offering improved fuel efficiencies.

Scott Wharton, Musgrave Retail Partners GB supply chain director, said: “We can now offer Londis retailers a complete service for fresh produce and reduce the impact of our operations on the environment.”
