A store is only as good as the stock on its shelves. It’s essential that our distribution network is as good as it can be, because anything less than perfect means unhappy customers.
Fortunately, as leaders in logistics management, and with 28 Distribution Centres across the UK and the Republic of Ireland, we are up to the task. With the latest technology we transport 60 million cases of goods to 3,000 stores every week.
Naturally, we meet some serious challenges along the way while working across 11.5 million sq ft of space. But with new Distribution Centres and new ways of running our network, we make sure our customers get what they want, when they want it.
Our ‘Fresh’ Distribution Centre network supplies all fresh and frozen products to our stores. At each centre we take deliveries from suppliers, break them into individual stock lines, then re-pack them to give each store exactly what it needs — including all fresh produce. We have fresh Distribution Centres across the UK, at locations that include Avonmouth, Livingston and Southampton.
Our ‘Grocery’ Distribution Centres provide our stores with all ‘ambient’ food, such as drinks and goods in packets or tins. We have grocery Distribution Centres in Reading, Thurrock, Magor and other locations across the country. For some of our grocery items, such as tobacco products, the suppliers deliver directly to our stores.
Our ‘General Merchandise’ Distribution Centres keep our stores supplied with products such as health and beauty, electrical and homeware goods. Our locations include Chesterfield and Middlesbrough. We also have a clothing Distribution Centre in Daventry that supplies all F+F merchandise to our stores.
