The visionary collaboration at Port Salford between Culina Group and General Mills was recognised at the 2016 CILT North West Annual Awards recently. The Awards were attended by leading logistics and transport professionals at a gala event at the Titanic Hotel Liverpool.
The “CILT Warehouse Operations Award” was presented to Culina Group for “World class performance in warehouse operations that demonstrate continuous improvement and productivity utilising the most appropriate equipment and software and a fully engaged workforce”.
General Mills received the “CILT Environmental Improvement Award” for “Outstanding achievement in the reduction of environmental impact in transport”
“This year’s CILT North West Awards championed many of the great developments in logistics and transport taking place in the North West of England,” said Simon Reynish, Chairman, CILT North West Region.
The definition and development of the revolutionary tri modal Port Salford project has been a unique initiative. Culina Group is reinforcing its commitment to creating solutions that are best for customers, consumers and the environment. General Mills is following through with its on-going commitment to evolve “greener” business operations.
The substantial investment in Port Salford, a unique multimodal facility is providing customers of Culina and General Mills with distribution options via road, rail and water.
The ambient facility, which went live in April 2016, provides 280,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space, houses 45,000 pallet spaces and has a dedicated specialised contract packing zone.
