Gist is excited to announce that its newest distribution centre, Gist Chesterfield, opened for business in January.

Chesterfield began replacing Gist’s operation in Sheffield in July last year. At 90,000 sq. ft., Chesterfield was purpose-built to support business growth and increase the scope of current Gist operations in the North East and Midlands. The site will offer temperature controlled storage and consolidation, order picking and, as part of Gist’s national transport network, will deliver to UK retailer RDCs 24/7.
The site is strategically located to enable Gist to service its food manufacturer and food retail clients.
Martin Gwynn, Gist Chief Executive, says: “We are always looking to build on our successful customer partnerships and our Chesterfield site is an important new extension to our national food logistics network, allowing us the space to grow our business in this area. This new facility will significantly increase our ability to bring great service to our customers. We look forward to announcing new contract wins in the near future and were pleased to create new job opportunities for the surrounding area.”
