Chilling out in Scotland

[ May 27, 2014   //   ]

Nagel Group company Nagel Langdon has moved its Scottish operations from a shared user site in Shieldhall, Glasgow to its own depot at Eurocentral Business Park near Motherwell.

In January the chilled logistics specialist announced the purchase of a 10.22 acre site at Eurocentral and, following conversion work, started operations on schedule on 23May. As part of a £5.5 million investment, a 54,000sq ft ambient warehouse was converted into a 20,000sq ft freezer store with access racking for up to 1,500 pallets and a 20,000 sq/ft chilled cross-docking platform with 12 automatic dock levelers and capacity to handle up to 500 pallets per hour as well as chilled storage and picking locations.
