Keith Boardall, group chief executive says: “Even in the current economic climate, where all investment has to be minutely considered, we are committed to a long-term future – and that means maintaining unrivalled performance levels. Our reputation is built on that performance.

“While we work with most of the household-name food producers, a significant proportion of our customers are smaller businesses which enjoy the cost efficiencies of the outstanding storage and transport consolidation we offer. Our highly-technologised stores and fleet enable us to deliver stock next day, in exactly the volumes needed by the retailers served by our customers.”

Garry Tilburn, managing director, Reed Boardall Cold Storage, adds: “Today’s supply chain needs lower stocks – a requirement we meet by taking orders day one and delivering day two. It sounds simple but it takes an incredibly sophisticated infrastructure to achieve this, day in day out – particularly with frozen food.”

Reed Boardall operates from a single site on the A1(M) at Boroughbridge, taking in frozen and chilled food from manufacturers and delivering on to supermarkets, wholesalers and food service suppliers.
