Fowler Welch to open Devon depot

Newton Abbot, Devon: Fowler Welch is to open a depot in Newton Abbot next month. The move followed an initiative for Tesco at the Washington depot in Sunderland,

Nick Hay, managing director says: “The ability we have developed there, to service the smaller Tesco Express range of stores in urban locations, has seen us asked to extend that and deliver a similar service in the southwest: Newton Abbot will be the centre of that operation.”

Newton Abbot will not be a dedicated Tesco-only depot however and Fowler Welch will be looking for other work in the area. Twenty-five trucks and 35 trailers will be based at the new site according to a report on Logisticsmanager.com web site.

Hay says: “We already have a level of business in the South West that will make Newton Abbot busy from the start. So, while Tesco is an important customer there and at other UK depots for us, the Newton Abbot staff will all be our own and the fleet based there will work across all local chilled and ambient business opportunities.”
