We're delighted to announce another big investment in our service commitment to customers today with the opening of BFP's new multi-million-pound, purpose-built depot in Daventry, Northamptonshire.
This new 73,000 square foot facility adds significant capacity to our existing nationwide network of depots in Bristol, Livingston, Leeds and Lewes. It brings total capacity across all of our depots to more than 200,000 square feet - that's around three football pitches full of bakery ingredients!
Being a purpose-built depot it has given us the opportunity to embrace the latest warehouse and logistics thinking. We're using a fully digital Warehouse Management System (WMS) from day one and the layout has been designed to minimise the time between orders being received and going onto our vans. And like all our other depots, Daventry stocks ambient, chilled and frozen products.
For customers of BFP all this means more products in stock nationwide and faster deliveries in the Midlands and Home Counties.
