Fowler Welch-Coolchain is opening a new depot in Devon centred around a Tesco partnership. The FMCG logistics division of Dart Group will run 25 vehicles and 35 trailers from the new Newton Abbot facility. Nick Hay, MD of Fowler Welch, says the depot follows an initiative for Tesco at the Washington site in Sunderland.
The ability we have developed there, to service the smaller Tesco Express range of stores in urban locations, has seen us asked to extend that and deliver a similar service in the South West. Newton Abbot will be the centre of that operation, says Hay. However, he adds that he will also be looking for other new customers in the region.
