Menzies has opened a 165,000sq ft warehouse to help it improve distribution to retailers through a new five-year wholesale and trunking agreement with Frontline.

The distribution centre in Coventry will support the company’s 65 regional warehouses across the UK and Ireland. Menzies has also increased the number of delivery vehicles, while the acquisition of Gnewt Cargo will enable it to be the only print distributor to use electric vans in London.

The distributor claims the deal will make it responsible for the majority of print media trunking from the summer. Menzies CEO Greg Michael said: “This contract win, alongside the recent similar trunking and wholesale wins with Reach and News UK, will maintain a long term sustainable route to market for print media.
