Acumen Logistics Group subsidiary Acumen Distribution has opened a new 50,000ft² warehouse in Halewood, Liverpool, on behalf of an automotive parts supplier.

The warehouse, close to Junction 6 of the M62, incorporates just under 2,000 pallet positions and a bulk storage area. It will handle bulk inbound components and deliver parts on a sequenced, just-in-time basis to a nearby car seat manufacturing plant.

The new site will be operated by a combined warehouse and logistics team of 13, which includes the appointment of 10 new members of staff, says Acumen.
