MT award winner Wren Kitchens has opened a transport hub in Avonmouth, which it said will provide a more efficient and greener transport service.

The three-acre site is located near to the M5 and the retailer said the move had created over 30 local jobs including drivers, porters, supervisors and office staff.

More than 50 7.5-tonne and 8-tonne branded Wren lorries will serve the depot and customers across the South West.

Lee Holmes, Wren Kitchens transport and logistics director, said opening the depot gave it a central location in the region: “We are also proactively positioning ourselves for the future as we aim to support the capacity of electric lorries and ultra-low emission zones,” he added.

The company won the 2020 MT Award for Business Excellence.
