After challenging times and delays, both due to the Coronavirus, NNR Global Logistics UK opened its new state-of-the-art distribution centre at the end of July 2020, in Wellingborough, UK.
After 2 years of meticulous planning, NNR’s 130,000 sqft, 15-metre-tall facility is ready and fully furnished to deliver solutions now and the future. Boasting 20,000 pallet positions and full E-Commerce capability, the latest investment from the Japanese owned ‘Award Winning’ global logistics provider is the UK flagship.
Head of Contract Logistics, Tim Dabbs, explained why the big investment:
The investment in the Wellingborough facility was to meet the increasing demand, in-line with our organic growth strategy. The site was commissioned 2 years ahead of schedule; testament to our success. The rapid expansion is due to NNR’s flexibility, attention to detail and impeccable customer service.
NNR Wellingborough provides the location, size and modern characteristics demanded by our business. Energy efficient design and central location help us minimise Carbon Footprint and reduce the final mile delivery time and cost. With flexible pallet height storage and customized pick-faces, together with available office space for our customers and congestion-busting parking for hundreds of vehicles, there’s no better choice than NNR.
Capable of serving all sectors, with special focus on ‘Big Brand’ FMCG customers and E-commerce fulfilment, NNR satisfies both Business-to-Business and Business-to-Consumer solutions. Both operations run simultaneously through NNR’s flexible warehouse management system, providing ‘plug & play’ Application Programming Interfaces for smooth systems integration which facilitates swift and inexpensive integration.
Delivering efficiency and optimization by combining the latest flexible software, the ideal facilities, and the best people to provide true end-to-end solutions, remains the recipe for NNR and their customers’ continued success.
NNR UK Managing Director, Lee Griffiths, further explained:
The investment in additional network locations and complementary solutions are part of NNR’s clearly defined growth strategy that will lead the group to further success. It’s been a productive time for NNR in EMEA who have recently expanded our network coverage with additional locations in France, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Dubai plus expanded Contract Logistics and Warehousing operations in Rotterdam, Warsaw and Budapest. During that time, NNR has also upgraded its cloud-based global operating platform and enhanced our online customer-facing tools. These achievements, whilst successfully navigating the Coronavirus pandemic without any business interruption, is testimony to the focus and diligence of our team to execute to a plan.
