Gist Transport

Gist is to open a new distribution centre in Motherwell in September to replace its existing facilities in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire.

The 80,000ft2, temperature-controlled site will be used for Gist food manufacturer and food retail clients.

Gist chief executive Martin Gwynn said: “We are always looking to build on our successful customer partnerships and the Motherwell site allows us the space to grow our business in Scotland.”

Gwynn also said that Gist was “looking forward to announcing new contract wins in the near future” and “creating new job opportunities in the area”.
