Menzies Distribution has opened a newstrade logistics hub in Inverness which will operate 24 hours a day, and will be dedicated to managing newspaper and magazine deliveries and returns for retailers.
Retailers in the area were previously served by a Menzies facility that handled both newstrade and parcel deliveries. However the new site will provide dedicated support for newstrade operations to meet the just-in-time delivery deadlines.
The investment is the latest development in Menzies’ ongoing programme to improve newstrade logistics capabilities following major recent contract wins.
Operations director Mark Cassie said: “We are delighted to announce the opening of our new newstrade logistics hub in Inverness which will provide around-the-clock, against-the-clock services to our newstrade customers. We are committed to supporting our publishers and retailers and remain committed to ensuring a sustainable route to market.”
