Menzies opens 24-hour newstrade hub in Inverness


Menzies Distribution has opened a newstrade logistics hub in Inverness which will operate 24-hours a day and will be dedicated to managing newspaper and magazine deliveries and returns for retailers.

Newstrade retailers in the Inverness region were previously served from a Menzies Distribution facility that handled both newstrade and parcel deliveries, but the new site will provide dedicated support for newstrade operations, to meet the just-in-time delivery deadlines.

The investment is the latest development in Menzies Distribution’s ongoing programme to improve newstrade logistics capabilities following recent major contract wins.

The company currently distributes around 30 million newstrade products a week and makes more than 25,000 retail drops each day. The new Inverness facility will form part of Menzies Distribution’s network of 65 depots.

Mark Cassie, Operations Director, Menzies Distribution said, “We are delighted to announce the opening of our new newstrade logistics hub in Inverness which will provide around the clock, against the clock services to our newstrade customers. We are committed to supporting our publishers and retailers and remain committed to ensuring a sustainable route to market.”
