Warehouses get BRC accreditation

Wisbech, UK: Partner Logistics’ two frozen food warehouses in the UK have achieved full quality certification after meeting The British Retail Consortium’s Global Standard for Storage and Distribution.

The warehouses were recently acquired by Ice Cold Storage BV which took on the infrastructure and management team from Partner Logistics along with 80% of its pallet capacity which includes four other warehouses in the Netherlands and Belgium as well as the trade name.

The site in Wisbech, Cambridge can store up to a capacity of 77,000 pallets in a deep freeze environment, and the Gloucester site can store up to 72,000 pallets. Both are fully automated.

Jon Miles, head of UK operations at Partner Logistics, said: “Achieving this accreditation provides both existing and prospective customers with the confidence and reassurance that the highest quality standards are being met and maintained at all times.”

The standard is designed to ensure best practice in handling, storage and distribution of products and promotes continuous improvement in operating practices. To meet the demanding requirements, Partner Logistics had to provide detailed evidence against a wide range of operating procedures including quality control, site environment, management and training.
