Premier Foods Completes Logistics Consolidation

Premier Foods has completed the previously announced consolidation of its third party operated grocery logistics sites from three National Distribution Centres to two Regional Distribution Centres based in Skelmersdale in Lancashire and Corby in Northamptonshire. Both Regional Distribution Centres now stock the full range of ambient grocery products (excluding cake), helping to reduce the number of customer order points leading to faster order fulfilment and improved customer service.

In addition, the simplified network, together with improved logistics management, will reduce the number of road journeys needed which is expected to remove around 750,000 road miles by the end of 2014. The resulting significant reduction in logistics and distribution costs is expected to offset the impact of excess warehouse capacity arising from Premier Foods’ previous disposal programme.
