Culina opens first site in Port Salford

[ April 8, 2016   //   ]

Culina Group opened its tri-modal logistics facility at Peel Port’s Port Salford National Import Centre. New subsidiary Great Bear Distribution will manage warehousing and distribution of a range of ambient brands from the 280,000sq ft. facility.  The new Port Salford facility will offer 45,000 pallet spaces, 30 loading doors, 30,000 sq. ft. of contract packing and 130 trailer parking spaces whilst also creating 280 jobs in the area.

Culina CEO, Thomas Van Mourik, described Port Salford as a truly cutting edge facility, saying: “This development is not just changing the dynamics of UK Transport and Logistics by dramatically improving direct supply chain routes across England and Scotland, but it’s also resulting in significant carbon emission reductions and environmental savings,”

Culina client General Mills goods will arrive in Port Salford by short sea services from Europe, saving a significant amount of road miles per year.
