New centre for Co-operative
CO-OPERATIVE RETAIL Logistics wants authorisation for 200 vehicles and 210 trailers at its new distribution centre on the Castlewood Business Park in South Normanton, Sutton-inAshfield.
Building work has begun on The Co-operative Group’s new £22m food distribution depot in north Derbyshire, which will employ about 1,080 staff and create about 340 new jobs.
The new 477,000sq ft facility, located just off junction 28 of the M1, will take over the work of two smaller Co-op food depots in the region – in nearby Alfreton, Derby, and Bulwell, Nottingham. About 460 people are employed at Alfreton and around 280 at Bulwell.
It is anticipated that the majority of the positions at the new site will be filled by existing Co-op staff transferring, but the new depot is expected to create at least 340 new jobs locally.
Mark Leonard, head of logistics service at Co-operative Food, says: “It will not only create a significant number of new jobs locally, but its proximity to our existing depots in the area will allow many staff to transfer to the new site, safeguarding around 740 jobs in the region.” The new distribution centre is expected to be fully operational during 2013, when it will service 529 stores throughout the region, covering Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
It will have the capacity to deliver around 68 million cases of groceries a year.
