Norbert Dentressangle announced that it has opened a national UK distribution hub at the redeveloped International Freight Terminal in Brownhills. The hub is for its Specialist Services operation, which provides specialist handling and distribution for businesses supplying high value, delicate or large commercial items.
The warehouse features 20,000 sq ft of fully racked high bay storage space and a 23,000 sq ft cross-dock facility with a total of 22 loading bays. There is also an office area of nearly 10,000 sq ft for the centralised customer service team and Norbert Dentressangle has invested in a new IT system there. A team of over 50 drivers, warehouse operatives and administration staff are based at the site.
The site was chosen due to its transport links via the M6, M6 toll, M42 and A5, and the fact that as well as meeting current storage and distribution needs it has the potential for significant future expansion.
