Each year we handle chilled products with a retail value in excess of £11bn.
What We Do
As the UK's leading provider of time critical distribution, we are the intelligent link between food & drink manufacturer and grocery retailer.
We work across multiple temperature regimes, including chilled, deep chill and ambient. Our warehouses pick over 3.3 million cases per week and our transport operation delivers around 130,000 pallets of food & drink products into UK grocery retailers, wholesalers, resellers, food processors and online retailers each week.
Every hour of every day, we ensure the smooth delivery of chilled, ambient or frozen food & drink products from production line to the retailer distribution centres (RDC).
We do this through our national network of depots and warehouses, large and modern fleet of articulated delivery vehicles and our valued, committed employees.
Comprehensive chilled network
Developed over thirty years, the NFT chilled distribution network is the most comprehensive in the UK. With unrivalled flexibility and efficiency, our transport network ensures that your products are at their freshest when we deliver them.
Delivering to every major retail distribution centre every day, our scale provides the fastest and most cost effective route into the UK grocery channel.
Our systems are also intelligently geared to speed the delivery of your product, demonstrate proof-of-delivery and receive payment.
NFT is much more than a warehouse and transport provider. Based on an in-depth understanding of our customers’ requirements, our expertise enables us to combine a range of NFT and third party assets to create tailored supply chain solutions.
Primary & secondary channels
Operating in both Primary (manufacturer to RDC) and Secondary (RDC to store) distribution channels, we apply our expertise to provide you with an end-to-end, systems controlled logistics service that adds value.
We understand the markets we serve are fast moving and highly demanding. We generate value by creating outstanding supply chains that power competitive advantage for our customers.
Our information systems provide ‘control tower’ functionality, allowing us to actively manage and continually optimise the network on behalf of our customers.
