Yearsley wins CSM contract

Heywood, UK: Yearsley Group has the contract for frozen logistics for bakery supplier, CSM.  Under the contract that started last month Yearsley will handle 10,000 pallets storing some 300 finished frozen products.

All collections will be from CSM’s factory at Bromborough on the Wirral and stored at Yearsley Group’s Heywood cold store for distribution to retailers.

Tim Moran, cold storage and distribution sales director, Yearsley Group says: “We were already working closely with CSM, having won the contract for their business with Tesco in Ireland and Cookie Man business from our Coleshill depot. This allowed us to demonstrate our service and expertise and opened the door to bringing on board their entire storage operation.”

Consolidating stock from CSM’s Bromborough site at the Heywood store also provides CSM access to Yearsley Group’s picking and repacking facilities. A section of the cold store will be dedicated to order picking for CSM customers, while the repack department will offer new packing formats to be considered.

CSM, formerly known as BakeMark in the UK, operates six sites in the UK and supplies finished products to most of the UK’s major multiples and catering organisations.
