UK retail and foodservice supplier Adelie Foods has doubled its distribution capacity, thanks to the introduction of a depot site in Cardiff and the expansion of its facilities in Haydock and Tamworth, all in the UK.
The depot upgrades are part of a “substantial multi-million pound investment”, which has seen all three sites increase both frozen and chilled capacity.
Tamworth is the biggest of the sites at 28,000 square feet, followed by Haydock with 25,000 square feet and Cardiff at 8,000 square feet.
The roll out of Adelie’s new electronic proof of delivery system is also well underway across the whole distribution estate, which will capture real time delivery data instantly to provide a better customer experience.
Adelie Foods head of distribution Sean Glover said: “It’s an exciting time at Adelie as we modernise our depots and vehicle fleet, reaching more consumers than ever before. The investment will allow us to deliver to more locations and provide an even better level of service to our customers from all channels.
“Our distribution network is continuing to grow and the expanding distribution capacity across the three sites will help to facilitate further growth.”
Adelie Foods currently delivers to over 34,000 accounts each week and has more than 270 vehicles supplying its growing network.
