Waitrose expands Milton Keynes warehouse

30 September 2021

THE GROCER has added 13,604 pallets of extra storage capacity.

The new extension consists of an intralogistics solution with AR Racking’s adjustable pallet racking that will provide the warehouse with better agility in loading and unloading operations, and with direct access to goods. The solution is designed to be ‘perfectly adapted to the increase in demand for consumer goods and the demand on delivery times’.

John Lewis Partnership project manager Lawrence Ireson, explains further: “Our aim is for Waitrose to remain the supermarket chain most valued by the British people and to do that we need a logistics infrastructure that allows us to hold more stock of products that can be delivered in less time. We knew that AR Racking would meet their promises on this strategic extension.”

“This is a project that is tailored to the client's needs and characteristics. The racks have a paint finish in Waitrose's corporate green colour,” says AR Racking UK key account manager Mike Smyth. 

“We have strictly adhered to the delivery and installation schedules agreed with Waitrose, whose standards are exacting,” adds Jim Albans, AR Racking's UK project manager.
