George Kime Transport celebrated the opening of its new distribution centre in Sleaford with an open day coinciding with National Lorry Week, and invited suppliers and customers to bring their families and staff to celebrate and learn more about HGV safety and use.
The Sleaford depot became fully operational on 12 October as a 24-hour operation, offering a wide array of warehouse and distribution operations from its four-acre site near the A17 trunk road. The 84,000sq ft warehouse, with capacity for 6,000 pallets, is specified to meet the very highest standards for major retail customers.
This puts Kime’s total warehousing at 114,000sq ft. Its fleet comprises 47 vehicles and 60 trailers.
Kime’s threw open its doors to all its commercial partners as part of the Road Haulage Association’s National Lorry Week, which aims to raise awareness of the economic importance of the logistics industry and the high standards of safety and efficiency which our national HGV fleet enjoys.
The Kime’s Family Open Day included a wealth of activities for children, including their very own high-visibility jackets printed with ‘Love the Lorry’ logos; a vintage HGV on display; a visit from motor-racing champion Jack Drury with Kime’s championship winning Triumph 675 Daytona Race Bike; and a rare opportunity to explore the world of HGVs and warehousing with expert guides to educate the guests.
Local police were also invited, along with the local cycle club, to show cyclists how to safely share road space with HGVs.
