UK: Logistics group CERT opens "national hub"
UK logistics group CERT has opened a bonded distribution centre in Leicestershire that it says will act as a "national hub" for the delivery of beverages throughout the country.
CERT, who owns drinks logistics firm Octavian, unveiled the 235,000 sq ft centre on Friday (21 July) in the town of Lutterworth. The site, CERT said, would act as the centre for its drinks delivery service, which handles 32m cases of drinks a year.
Jeff Stanton, chief executive of the CERT Group, said: "Lutterworth brings the CERT drinks network's capacity in Leicestershire to over 500,000 sq ft of storage space and provides a modern, strategically located hub from which, in a highly pressurised trading environment, we can offer optimum speed to market for our customers' goods."
