Setting The Scene
The UKs largest dedicated parcel carrier officially opened its new purpose built, 15,000 square metre, parcel distribution hub in Warrington back in 2014.
The facility was designed to support the continuation of growth of the company. The hub has a capacity of around 550,000 parcels a day – almost three times that of the previous site in Warrington.
The facility’s purpose was to help with the developing requirement for next day deliveries, playing a key role in plans for international expansion. The site also provides a platform for further innovation.
L-A-C Logistics Automation is now entering its 5th year, working with the multinational delivery company, in the development of automated solutions for parcel processing. Its latest challenge was to split small parcels from large to increase processing times.
