Anglia Freights new £0.5m loading doc

23 September 2016

Our member, Anglia Freight, based at Mid Suffolk business Park at Eye, has expanded its capacity by installing a cross dock facility for handling goods

It became a member of the Palletline distribution system in 1995, gained ISO quality accreditation in 2004 and became a member of The Hazchem Network in 2007.

It was joined on Saturday by senior representatives of Palletline and The Hazchem Network for the official launch of the new cross dock facility.

"The new cross dock facility will allow us to rapidly unload deliveries and load items straight on to other vehicles in a covered, dry environment.

"This quicker and safer process improves the speed and quality of service for our customers and significantly increases the volume of pallets that Anglia Freight can handle."

The facility provides a 17,000sq ft covered loading and unloading area connected to the warehouse, and includes low energy lighting and solar power generation.

The opening was performed by Amy Liston of Palletline and Nada Marinovic of The Hazchem Network, in front of around 100 members of the Anglia Freight team and their families.

Nada Marinovic, sales director for The Hazchem Network, added: "I was delighted to be invited to open this excellent cross dock facility, jointly with Amy from Palletline, as it is incredibly important that companies like Anglia Freight are protecting clients’ hazardous substance consignments in this way."
