[ October 31, 2014   //   ]

Norbert Dentressangle has opened a new national distribution hub for its Specialist Services operation, on the site of its International Freight Terminal at Brownhills, near Walsall. It provides specialist-handling distribution for businesses supplying high value, delicate or large commercial items.

The new warehouse features 20,000sq ft of fully racked high bay storage space and a 23,000sq ft cross-dock facility with 22 loading bays. There is also an office area of nearly 10,000 sq ft (930 sq m) for the centralised customer service team and Norbert Dentressangle has invested in a new IT system.

A team of over 50 drivers, warehouse operatives and administration staff are based at the site.
