New State-of-the Art Warehouse Facility for Alloga UK

Alloga UK, one of the country’s leading healthcare pre-wholesaling and contract logistics companies, is to open another state-of-the art warehouse facility in the East Midlands.

 

Alloga UK provides supply chain solutions to the healthcare industry, offering specialist storage, fulfilment and distribution services for pharmaceutical, healthcare, medical device, veterinary and consumer product manufacturing companies. 

 

Alloga UK’s operations are currently based in South Normanton, with eight pharma-grade warehouses and the company’s strategy is one of growth and continued investment for a sound future for the business and its employees.

 

The company now needs to further expand its storage and distribution capacity in order to accommodate growth from new business wins, post Brexit and Covid-19 stock builds and increase in volumes from existing clients to provide capacity for continued growth beyond 2020.

                   

Alloga UK is now delighted to announce that a new site will be added to their current warehouse portfolio, and is planned to be fully commissioned and operationally live in mid-2021.

 

Currently named  Derby 370, this new site, which will be known as AP8, is located on Derby Commercial Park which is 20 miles south of the Alloga Campus with good links to the M1 motorway and two miles east of the city of Derby facilitating good access to the working population. The distribution site has been developed by the owners, Panattoni (the world’s largest privately owned industrial developer) and it is significantly larger than Alloga’s existing warehouses, allowing them much needed new capacity for sustained future growth.

 

The specification of the site includes:

- Total size of 371,000 sq ft (34,466 sq m)

- 15 metres to haunch

- Capacity for c.70,000 pallets of storage (euro pallets)

- BREEAM = Very Good status

- Administration offices over three floors

- Warehouse office hub over two floors

- 74 HGV lorry parking spaces and 270 car parking spaces

- 24 dock level doors, eight Double Deck docks and three level access doors

 

Chris Williams, Managing Director of Alloga UK, states: “It is always fantastic news when we open new facilities, and Derby 370 is particularly exciting because it will be our largest warehouse and the first warehouse which is not located in South Normanton.

 

It gives us the opportunity to expand the capabilities of our pre-wholesale business, and further increase job opportunities for existing staff and also new skilled and talented staff from the Derby area.

 

“Our capabilities and service offering for our customers, and manufacturer partners, will continue to evolve with this considerable investment, which will also further enhance our ability to provide innovative solutions and services to meet the ever changing needs of our clients.”
