Culina is delighted to announce that planning permission has been granted to build a 280,000 sq. ft. ambient food and drink logistics facility at the National Import Centre at Port Salford, creating 280 jobs.

Culina Port Salford will have a capacity of 45,000 pallets and the multimodal facility, accessible by road, rail and short-sea shipping, and is scheduled to go-live by April 2016 and be fully operational by the end of that year.

The state-of-the-art site will be located adjacent to the Manchester Ship Canal and next to the arterial motorway routes of the M60 and M62.

Thomas Van Mourik, Culina CEO, said: "This is fantastic news and a really important development as we seek to enhance our market leading position. Culina Port Salford will give us a real strategic foothold in the North West, enabling us to manage the growth of our existing clients, bring even more new business on board and create a substantial number of jobs in the region."

This announcement follows the confirmation of detailed planning permission for the warehouse unit, granted by Salford City Council at a meeting on 19 March.

The site will be developed in conjunction with Peel Ports. Construction on the new Culina warehouse is scheduled to start on site within weeks.
