Warm welcome in Hinckley for cold courier experts

15 October 2015

Refrigerated courier expert Igloo has opened a new depot in Leicestershire to keep pace with growing customer demand.

The new depot on Lime Kilns Business Park, Hinckley is part of a major investment by Igloo in its nationwide distribution and customer service.

Igloo has recruited additional depot staff from the local area and the company is hoping to recruit more in the near future.

Opening a new depot in Hinckley will allow Igloo to reduce its carbon footprint by being closer to points of delivery across its national distribution network. 

Leigh Ogley, Operations Director of Igloo, said: “Hinckley has exceptional transport connections and local infrastructure and its central position increases our capacity to move products around the Igloo depot network.

“We can now provide even quicker lead and response times ensuring that urgent deliveries get through to clients in the Midlands and North in ice cold condition.” 

Alistair Turner, Chief Executive of Igloo, added: “With an ever increasing list of satisfied clients our expanding delivery network is growing from strength to strength.” 

In addition to the Hinckley depot, Igloo has invested in new vehicles, increasing the Igloo fleet by twenty per cent to support the continued growth of the business. 

Igloo’s new vehicle fleet offers increased loading capacity and greater versatility including better temperature control, with three different temperature regimes in separate compartments.
