PRLog - Jul. 4, 2014 - BUCHAREST, Romania -- Keswick Enterprises Group member company, Tibbett Logistics, announces that it has extended its logistics business in Romania with an unnamed leading European multi-national retailer to include the storage and distribution of non-food imports from Asia Pacific and European suppliers.  As a result the company has opened a dedicated 8,500 sq metre (91,500 sq ft) warehouse in Europolis Park on the western edge of Bucharest – its tenth distribution centre in the country.

Tibbett Logistics already handles storage and domestic distribution of the retailer’s imported dry food products, plus merchandise from Romanian suppliers, at a neighbouring 22,000 sq metre (237,000 sq ft) dedicated distribution centre in Europolis Park.

The company’s warehousing portfolio in Romania now exceeds 80,000 sq m (860,000 sq ft) – making it the country’s largest third-party provider of warehousing solutions.

The location of the new site was chosen with transport efficiencies in mind.  Imported container freight from the Asia Pacific region is transported from the Port of Constanta to Bucharest by Tibbett Logistics’ regular block train service into its own intermodal (road-rail) terminal – located just 50 metres from the new import warehouse.

By the fourth quarter of this year the company expects to be transporting intra-European imports via intermodal services as well – which will shift some 2,500 truckloads from road to rail – a saving of over 55 million tonne-kilometres a year.

This is the first new facility to be opened by Tibbett Logistics in 2014 and follows the inauguration of an automotive warehouse in Arad at the end of 2013.  In 2012 the company opened a combined FMCG and automotive warehouse of 8,500 sq metres in Deva, plus a new platform for the handling of fresh fish in Bucharest.  Further openings are expected to be announced later this year.

Tibbett Logistics is Romania’s largest privately owned contract logistics specialist.  It provides intermodal logistics and extensive supply chain management services to the automotive, textiles, retail and other FMCG sectors across Romania and elsewhere in South East Europe.  As well as operating 80,000 sq metres of warehousing, the company has a distribution fleet comprising tilt trailers, double- and triple-chamber reefers and container chassis – along with its own intermodal rail wagons.
