Logistics Hub UK, Sheffield City Region - the UK’s ‘Central and Portcentric’ Logistics Location.
In the traditional UK distribution model, the transportation of goods from peripheral ports to inland deconsolidation centres (traditionally in the English Midlands), involves significant journey times and costs. The alternative ‘port centric’ distribution model can reduced costs and delivery times between port and distribution centre. However, because most UK ports are peripherally located, this model typically results in significant transportation times and costs between port centric distribution centres and consumer markets.
Logistics Hub UK’s optimal geography provides distribution companies with a hub location that is both ‘UK central’ and ‘port centric’, based on the close proximity of the Humber ports - all accessible within HGV drive times of 1 hour or less.
Logistics Hub UK’s unique ‘central and port centric’ location delivers a range of potential benefits to logistics, distribution and warehousing companies, including:

RECRUITING HGV drivers is an ongoing issue in the UK logistics sector, there are lots of roles available but a lack of trained people to fill them. At Logistics and Distribution Group we could easily employ an extra 10/ 15 drivers per day and we know that we are not alone.
