From a leading logistics provider

April 24, 2017
Efficient logistics in the protein capital.

Johnston Logistics UK is situated in the heart of East Anglia, a region known for its protein production.

The food sector plays an important role in East Anglia’s economy.  As a county, Norfolk boasts the largest agricultural sector of any county in the UK; while East Anglia as a region has some three quarters of its land used for agriculture.

Britain’s pork and poultry farms are centred largely on East Anglia, the area is often referred to as the protein capital of the UK.  With hens laying around 2.2 million eggs a day and farms in the region producing about 25% of the country’s broilers (chickens reared for meat) it’s not hard to see why.  The industry produces not only eggs and fresh/frozen poultry meat; its output also forms the basis of the country’s processed food and ready meal industry.

Having an effective and efficient logistics provider is a key success factor for both producers and retailers.  It is vital to ensure that the many stakeholders involved in the food supply chain from farmers, agents, manufacturers, packers, wholesalers, retailers, suppliers and transporters are all integrated seamlessly into the process.

Effective logistics requires delivering the right product at the right time in the right condition and this is as, if not more, important in food processing as in any other manufacturing sector.
