TNT Express expands Thetford Depot

TNT will be better able to serve express delivery needs of customers with the opening of the opening of the new extension at  its Thetford Depot.

The bigger and better depot, which includes 21 new loading bays, significantly increases TNT’s capacity to handle more and more parcels and consignments.

The extended depot, at Howlett way on the Fisons Way Industrial Estate, will be able to increase its volumes by about 3,000 to 8,000 deliveries a day, securing its future and that of the 160 employees who work at Thetford.

The construction work, by Norfolk-based RG Carter, started last March and included building a new mezzanine floor and a further 21 delivery doors. It comes after the depot’s vehicle maintenance unit underwent a £400,000 refurbishment.
