One of the UK’s major third party supply chain specialists, Seafield logistics works closely with its customers to create long term working relationships.
The company has developed an extensive array of tailored, integrated logistics solutions to enable its large and varied client base reduce its supply chain costs.
With in excess of 1.5 million square feet of dedicated or multi-user warehousing across six sites, Seafield Logistics provides a high quality, secure storage service for clients in the glass, chemicals, steel, packaging and FMCG industries.
Seafield Logistics required an additional warehouse at its Cambridgeshire distribution centre to accommodate business growth with one of its key account customers, a global manufacturer of chocolate and confectionery products.
Spaciotempo supplied Seafield Logistics with a staggering 2,400sqm of additional storage and handling space. Two gutter linked 20m x 60m buildings, helped provide the extra capacity needed to fulfil its contract with the client.
Although the largest buildings Spaciotempo supplied in 2007, the £150,000 contract was completed within four weeks, including manufacturing and installation. In order to conform with hygiene regulations for the storage of food products, Spaciotempo sealed the inner perimeter of the facility with UPVC fabric, making it rodent-proof and to prevent contamination.
To support the fast moving operation, which serves major retailer’s distribution networks across the UK, the new warehouse is equipped with specially designed fast-action speed doors, enabling easy access for MHE operators. The single skin, steel clad unit also comes complete with a modern lighting system allowing a 24-hour operation if required.
Seafield Logistics’ General Manager, Craig Evans, comments: “Having considered leasing additional warehousing from a third party, we found hiring a temporary facility from Spaciotempo delivered greater benefits at a lesser cost.”
“Offering a complete service, Spaciotempo was able to provide a bespoke solution which met the specific requirements of our operation.”
