MEACHERS GLOBAL Logistics has won the contract to run the Southampton Sustainable Distribution Centre (SDC).
The operation will be launched at a 20,000ft2 site on the Nursling Industrial Estate on Monday 3 February and will serve customers in Southampton, Winchester, Eastleigh, Hedge End, Totton and the New Forest. Deliveries of consumer goods will be received
24 hours a day, then either stored or grouped with deliveries for the same destination to reduce vehicle miles.
Meachers commercial director Gary Whittle said: "Winning this tender is great news for Meachers, our customers and the Southampton area. With extensive experience running consolidation centres, we have been strong advocates for the creation of an SDC for the region for many years."
