Londis is improving its supply chain efficiency with a new fleet of environmentally-friendly lorries. The multi-million pound 72-piece fleet will supplement the existing distribution fleet and be phased into circulation over the next two months. Chilled produce is a key focus for Londis as it embarks on a re-launch of its entire fresh range. All the new vehicles have facilities for chilled merchandise including fresh meat, fruit and vegetables, traditional dairy, cooked meats and ready meal products.

"It is important that we offer Londis retailers a first class service," said Scott Wharton, Musgrave Retail Parners GB supply chain director.
