It is their business practise to help members operate safely, ethically and profitably whilst safeguarding industry standards and their voice is heard clearly within government. Browns Distribution have been long standing, established members of the RHA and combining the two bodies is a benefit to all of the companies customers.

This extra accreditation solidifies our position as market leaders in the warehousing and storage sector and we can be found on their website at www.UKWA.org.uk

The ultra-modern depot has warehousing of 100,000sq ft of racked warehousing storage space and houses in excess of 10,000 pallets. Cutting edge systems allows Browns to manage stock inventory all online and gives full visibility of stock to customers in a live environment.

UKWA Warehouse

Browns are well known as a warehousing company in Staffordshire and offer:

  • Pallet Warehousing
  • Bulk Pallet Storage
  • Container de-stuffing / de-vanning
  • Inventory management
  • Pick and Pack

The UKWA conducted a recent study which not only identified a lack of available warehouse space in the UK, but also a lack of available land for businesses to grow into. It was also found that due to this seismic change in the way people buy goods, existing warehouses, whether this be manufacturing, in house or 3pl/transport companies, all warehouse facilities are having to be ultra-efficient as demand for just in time fulfilment is a huge requirement.

Within the UK they identified over 1,500 individual warehouse units used for storage and distribution in excess of 100,000 sq ft, which in total account for 424m sq ft of warehouse space.

They found that by region it came as no surprise that the majority of warehouse space is located either near the major population centres or within the Golden Triangle at the centre of the country. The East midlands accounts for 18% of all warehouse space, equating to 78m sq ft. However, by combining London and the South East together this region accounts for 25% of all warehouse stock, just over 93m sq ft.

Although Browns Distribution is located centrally in the Midlands we are able to offer a Nationwide service due to our large fleet of general haulage vehicles. We have existing warehousing clients all over the UK and we fulfil all of the supply chain needs.
