Local transport company invests in the future with new warehouse facility

Driven by their commitment to invest in the future of not only the organisation but the local area too, Chard-based transport and logistics company, C&D South West, is purchasing an additional warehousing site in Martock, Somerset.

The new site boasts a 26,728 sq. ft expansion of warehousing, yard and office space, as well as a healthy amount of future job opportunities for the local community.

With many customers based in the South West, transporting their goods across the UK and Europe, C&D wanted to invest in the future and to further grow its business.

Lorna Hammond, C&D’s Managing Director, said: “It’s a great pleasure to announce the addition of our new yard at Martock. With this new facility, C&D has made its next big step into investing in the future. This will allow us to further expand our service offering to customers with additional storage and warehousing capacity, alongside an expansion of yard space to grow our vehicle fleet for future work.

“We’re both excited and honoured to reach this achievement and hope that this new business venture will open new doors for not only us as a business, but for the people of Martock and the wider Somerset community too.”

Founded in 1987, C&D has been providing quality distribution to clients for almost 35 years. The company offers a guaranteed 24-hour delivery service to every UK postcode every day, with 96% of their business being palletised distribution for customers based within a 40-mile radius of their HQ.

Martock is already a hub of service, manufacturing and distribution businesses and the new site will expand C&D’s existing service offering and bring a plethora of new and exciting opportunities for growth, both within the business and the surrounding area. C&D is hoping to create new jobs through the expansion of its fleet and service offering, which, in turn will enable them to better serve both current and new customers.
