Warehousing & Distribution

Abbey operates 110,000ft2 of warehousing units on the Wirral, North West England. The warehousing space is strategically located close to the M53, M56, M6 and M62 motorways and Liverpool port.

The Wirral warehouse is a secure, modern space, manned 24/7 and featuring the latest in warehouse technologies and we have invested heavily in market leading Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), to provide customers with real-time visibility of our warehouse operations and their stock levels.

Supporting our Wirral warehouse units is our nationwide next day delivery service which provides full load, pallet and part pallet distribution. Our fleet of vehicles includes curtain sided 44 tonne vehicles, double deck vehicles, rigid box vehicles and we are a member of the nationwide Pallet-Track network which enables us to effectively manage costs for our customers and full utilisation of our vehicles.

We also operate a food grade liquid drumming facility at our Wirral warehouse, which provides safe, hygienic and efficient drumming of liquid products.  The drumming service provides significant added value to the bulk liquid transport we provide to customers, as we are able to collect liquid products in our road tankers and deliver them to our drumming facility, where the finished products are drummed and then transported through Abbeys distribution fleet across the UK and Europe.
