Nagel Langdons opens temperature-controlled distribution centre in Liverpool

The construction of food logistics specialist Nagel Langdons’ new distribution centre in Liverpool is now complete and will open for business from 1st March 2019. The modern dual temperature facility will provide storage facility for 4,700 frozen and 100 chilled pallets, in addition to capacity for cross-docking and load assembly.

Nagel Langdons has been operating a depot in Knowsley, Liverpool since 2008. Northern General Manager from Nagel Langdons, Chris Davies explained, “Our existing facility has reached its capacity. Unfortunately it was not possible to expand our operations at the current site in order to respond to the growing needs of our customers.”

The new facility has been constructed nearby on a 7.5 acre site. “We decided to build a new depot and remain in Liverpool because of its strategical location and good transport links within The Northern Powerhouse. With the construction of the new facility, we effectively double our warehouse and cross-docking capability and are well positioned for further growth. The additional space allows us to expand our capacity for handling chilled and frozen food products and what we can offer our customers”, says Davies.

The temperature-controlled warehouse will feature 87,000 sq ft of warehouse and 3,500 sq ft of office space.

Nagel Langdons, the UK subsidiary of the Nagel-Group, operates from eight depots throughout mainland UK. Capitalising on its extensive network with depots in Bridgwater, Dover, Luton, Peterborough, Redditch, Barnsley, Liverpool, and Glasgow, the company delivers chilled, frozen, and ambient food consignments for its customers throughout the UK. As part of the Nagel-Group which operates across Europe, Nagel Langdons also offers logistics services for import and export of food products throughout Europe.
