‘NFT Tilbury’, our new 21,000m2 (230,000 sq. ft.)  logistics centre, is Europe’s largest port-centric, chilled warehouse facility.

Within 10 miles of London, NFT Tilbury is ideally located to handle food imports via any of the southern ports, including Southampton, London Gateway, Dover, Felixstowe and Portsmouth.

Whether arriving by sea or via road, products can be available for dispatch at an unrivalled speed.  This ensures chilled food arrives fresher with longer shelf life – a benefit for the manufacturer, retailer and consumer.

Bulk food shipments no longer need to be transported on lengthy journeys inland before unloading can take place – eliminating unnecessary and costly food miles.

This facility enables the creation of international end-to-end supply chain solutions and the potential to unlock savings of 10-20% of the cost of inbound logistics to the UK.

NFT Tilbury seamlessly integrates with our nationwide chilled transport network that delivers to every retailer RDC, every day.

With space for 25,000 pallets of chilled or ambient food, and a throughput of 2.5 million cases per week, NFT Tilbury has the capacity to meet both your current and future needs.
