LPR moving depots to full automation

LPR UK, part of the European pallet pooling specialist group, has announced that it is to invest a ‘six figure sum’ in fully automating its Sywell and Avonmouth depots.

The pallet pooling specialist has also announced that it is increasing funding for the company’s flatbed vehicle service with XPO Logistics. This new service is going to be rolled out across the North West of England next year. LPR is also working with a number of smaller, regional transport companies to run similar services across the UK as well.

Simon Wood, operations director for LPR UK and Ireland, commented: “These upgrades signal LPR’s intent to continually improve efficiencies across its UK network, while ensuring safety and first-rate working environments.”

As well as its investment plans and new service offerings, LPR has reported a number of new contracts it has won in the last 12 months. It has won contracts with major FMCG manufacturers including Princes Gate and East End Foods. LPR is also improving its presence in the logistics industry with new contracts being signed with Boardlink and Global Freight.
