FELIXSTOWE MEGA DC

READY FOR BUSINESS

The Felixstowe Mega Distribution Centre (FMDC) is the latest addition to Uniserve’s warehousing portfolio. A clear demonstration of our commitment to both innovation and investment, this giant 750,000 sq ft ambient and freezer distribution centre has changed the UK logistics landscape forever.

WHAT MAKES THIS DIFFERENT?

The significance of the FMDC is not simply what it is, but where it is. Introduction of huge new capacity into a space-starved warehousing market is one thing, but when that capacity is housed less than a quarter of a mile from the UK’s largest container port, it is a genuine game-changer. For the first time ever port-centric logistics at scale is a reality for businesses moving cargo through the Port of Felixstowe.

THE BENEFITS OF

PORT-CENTRIC LOGISTICS

Consistent with Uniserve’s well-earned reputation for delivering innovation and value to the UK’s supply chain, the FMDC has created an industry first in making port-centric logistics at scale a reality at the UK’s largest, busiest container port. And when we say port-centric, we really mean port-centric: cargo being moved from the Port of Felixstowe to the new facility will have less than a quarter of a mile to travel. This unrivalled proximity plus the outstanding range of services available combine to deliver a host of key benefits just at a time when UK businesses need them most.

REDUCE COSTS / COMPLEXITY

The port-centric approach to logistics can reduce customer costs by removing a number of handling stages throughout the storage and distribution process.

QUICKER ACCESS TO GOODS

Port-centric warehousing offers customers a more agile, responsive and flexible approach to managing their supply chains

FREE UP RESOURCE / CAPACITY

The positive effects of utilising a port-centric facility such as the FMDC can be felt throughout customers’ entire supply chain operations.

IMPROVED CASH FLOW

By holding imported goods for future export under bond, no duty will be payable in the UK thereby providing enhanced control of cash flows.
