The French haulage giant Norbert Dentressangle is expanding its Saxham distribution centre from the end of April.
The company says it will add a East of England platform for its Specialist Services operation, which makes non-standard deliveries of high value, fragile, bulky or time sensitive consignments.
It follows the opening of a similar centre at Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
Dan Myers, managing director at Norbert Dentressangle Transport and Distribution UK said: “It’s all about supporting our technology and high care customers, which often require tailored services, and enhancing our national infrastructure to establish a robust platform that underpins our best in class offering.”
Its 55,000 sq ft Saxham Business Park facility has 16,000 sq ft of warehousing and trhe company says ‘has potential for significant future expansion’ with its good east-west links via the neighbouring A14.
Dave Finnie, its director of dedicated contracts and specialist services, added: “The expanded service will particularly support our customers throughout Norwich, Ipswich and surrounding areas by providing reduced transit times and enhance our early morning delivery capability.”
Saxham is the fourth site the company has invested in for its Specialist Services business in the last three years.
