Distribution

Blakemore_Logistics_SPAR_Distribution

A.F. Blakemore's group logistics operation distributes to more than 8,500 delivery points across the UK, including more than 1,000 SPAR stores.

Our distribution centres carry over 13,000 lines, picking and distributing 92.5 million packs per year.

A delivery fleet of more than 280 vehicles is out on a daily basis, travelling around 25 million miles per year.

Our scheduling function uses a planning tool called Paragon that links into our warehouse management system, WDS, to schedule routes on a daily basis. Fleet and fridge temperatures are fully tracked using a system called Blue Tree.

We are continuously trying to enhance our efficiency performance in many areas, as is detailed in our annual Responsible Business Report.
