APC Overnight invests in new £14 million National Hub
APC is relocating operations in 2012 to a purpose-built £14 million, 128,000 Sq.Ft National Hub at Kingswood Lake, Cannock, Staffordshire. The new Hub will provide more than double the capacity of the current site near Wolverhampton and will benefit from state of the art material handling systems, including an Interroll cross-belt sortation system. APC will also expand its hub-based trunking fleet with more Don-Bur EcoStream double-decker trailers.
APC's New Hub
“The new hub is essential to APC’s national operations and future development; it is a major investment made possible through the growth we are enjoying across the APC network. With the high demand for our next day deliveries, we have outgrown our existing hub in Essington. The new site will provide us with a well-designed, state-of-the-art and very efficient national base. By remaining in the West Midlands we can retain our highly skilled workforce, and the location is convenient for future recruitment. We are equipping the new hub with advanced systems that will boost productivity and efficiency,” said Ivor Skinner, APC Overnight MD.
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for economic growth and prosperity Ben Adams said: “APC Overnight is a national leader in the courier industry and another flagship firm to locate at Kingswood Lakeside. We’re proud to have developed the site and rejuvenated it from a former open cast mine into a thriving centre for business. The economy and prosperity are our top priorities and we are ensuring that we invest in supporting business and in the necessary infrastructure to attract major national and international companies.”
APC Overnight Puts EcoStream Double-decker Trailer To The Test
APC Overnight is trialling the latest Don-Bur aerodynamic trailer in the first stage of a major project to replace its entire trailer fleet. The double-decker, curtain-sided “EcoStream” trailer is fitted with an innovative lifting deck enabling safer, quicker loading and unloading – and unique to this unit is the option to use the rear doors where access is an issue. Roll-out of the new slope-roofed trailers is planned for 2010.
The EcoStream trailers will complement the advanced DAF CF85 tractor units which APC Overnight has recently added to its fleet, enabling improved fuel consumption. Together, the trailers and EURO 5 rated tractor units will provide efficient transportation with reduced carbon footprint.
“The EcoStream is a cutting edge design that scores points all round for reducing emissions as well as improving safety. The upper lifting deck is lowered for loading and then raised to allow access to the area beneath, which not only improves safety but also speeds up the process. We were also keen to solve the problem of limited access to the decks which we’ve achieved by configuring the design to allow loading and unloading via the rear doors. This flexibility enables faster turnaround of the trailers,” says Syed Ziaullah, Operations Director, APC Overnight.
“Aerodynamic trailers are the way forward for APC Overnight. These trailers overcome the problem of inertia and rolling resistance, allowing the tractor units to perform more efficiently. Less drag caused by the trailer means better fuel consumption and lower emissions. This is important as our investment in EURO 5 rated equipment is enhanced with the EcoStream trailers, and even with older tractors there will be an improvement,” he adds.
