Morrisons is the only supermarket that integrates Manufacturing, Logistics and Retailing in one seamless organisation to the level that we do.
Logistics doesn’t get more cutting edge than this. We’re the UK’s second largest fresh food manufacturer and fourth largest food retailer - with over 12 million customers per week demanding the freshest food.
It’s the job of our 8,500 colleagues in logistics to get that to them and our Logistics Team is quite exceptional. In addition to our sites which are run by 3rd party providers, we have our own network of six state of the art Regional Distribution Centres spread throughout the UK, which cover over six million square feet and serve a growing number of stores. Working closely with Supply Chain, we operate 24/7 to ensure that every day our stores receive all the goods they need, on time and in peak condition and we deliver to the shortest lead times in the industry. This means collectively checking in, storing, picking and despatching over 18 million cases each week using our fleet of over 650 tractor units and 1,750 trailers.
And we’re proud to say that we buy, clean and maintain our own vehicles which don’t just deliver goods but collect recyclable waste as well. As a result, we have one of the greatest but also the greenest logistics operations you’ll find anywhere. Although travelling 115 million miles per annum delivering to stores, we are passionate about reducing our carbon footprint by maximising fuel efficiency and introducing double-decker trailers to enable us to carry more goods in fewer journeys.
In our Logistics Team, everything is on a big scale and that includes the scope of career opportunities. The measure of our success is our ability to deliver a logistics cost which is better than the industry bench-mark. To achieve this, we are committed to bringing the best out in our people, which is one reason why we have dedicated Training & Development teams at every one of our sites.
If you’re looking for a faster-moving, farther-reaching retail logistics career, it’s here at Morrisons.
