Carlton Forest Group doubled its warehousing capacity in 2019 to more than 450,000 sq ft and was named as the fastest growing 3PL logistics company within the Sheffield City Region, an area known for its business growth and investment.
Furthermore, it was shortlisted as Co-Packing and Fulfilment Company of the Year at the UK Packaging Awards in November.
Alistair Plant, assistant group commercial manager at Carlton Forest group, said: “2019 was an amazing year for us which saw us deliver unprecedented growth and make considerable investment in our team members and management structure.
“This reinforced our already robust operations and gave a solid platform to implement last year’s growth plans and also start those for a new decade.”
During 2019 Carlton Forest saw its operations and customers base diversify with a large increase in e-commerce and fulfilment contracts for a variety of new customers.
It also opened a further site at Barnsley to reinforce its operations.
Alistair said: “We have plans to further invest in our warehousing capacity, warehouse management systems and stock control during the year.
“This will support this years planned growth and our five-year vision for the warehousing and logistics side of the business which will help us to retain our position as one of the leading sector companies in the North.”
