LPR UK, a division of Europe’s largest pallet pooling specialist, has announced a series of investments in its nationwide network of facilities.
The upgrades, which include full automation of two depots, will help drive the ongoing expansion of the business in the UK, the company said.
LPR has committed a six-figure sum to further enhance its facilities at Sywell and Avonmouth, working closely with logistics specialist XPO, with the upgrades seeing both locations becoming fully automated, a move intended to shore up the efficiency, safety and working environments of the sites.
LPR has also announced increased funding for its flatbed vehicle service with XPO.
“These upgrades signal LPR’s intent to continually improve efficiencies across its UK network, while ensuring safety and first-rate working environments," said Simon Wood, operations director for LPR UK and Ireland.
“This year has been very busy for LPR UK, with a number of important new contract wins," he continued. "We’re keen to build on this momentum as we enter 2018. Our commitment to continuing to improve our depots is evident with the move to automation in Sywell and Avonmouth – an incredibly exciting step forward for the business, and something we’re looking forward to seeing go live in 2018!”
