Alliance Automotive Group announces Rotherham NDC

Alliance Automotive Group (AAG), a global distributor of automotive parts and accessories, has recently announced its latest National Distribution Centre (NDC) in Rotherham.

The facility showcases transport solutions, reportedly including a fleet of NAPA branded wedge double deck trailers, which are supposedly designed to optimise product delivery and enhance operational efficiency.

The centrepiece of the new transport fleet is said to be the double deck trailers, equipped with a lift deck down the middle. It is claimed that this design allows for the transportation of materials on two levels, improving capacity and maximising space utilisation. With the new trailers, AAG says it can now deliver the whole product portfolio the next day, streamlining logistics and reducing delivery times.

Safety is allegedly important to AAG, and the new trailers are said to come equipped with a range of safety features. These include, but are not limited to, audible warnings when the deck is in action, supposedly ensuring heightened awareness among the operators, as well as warning strobe lights that flash when the deck is in operation, alerting nearby personnel to exercise caution. Furthermore, a tail lift has been fitted, designed to facilitate offloading at sites without a dock, ensuring efficient deliveries across locations.

One reported advantage of the trailer’s flexibility is the ability to transport different types of products in the most efficient manner. The company claims pallets can be delivered using the double deck trailers, while products can be transported in totes, dollies, collapsible (large black tote boxes), or pallets from manual areas. This versatility apparently enables AAG to transport its product portfolio in the most effective and economical way.

“The opening of our new National Distribution Centre in Rotherham marks a significant milestone for AAG,” said Neil Warren, UK Group Logistics Director. “With our state-of-the-art transport fleet and advanced double deck trailers, we are setting new standards in product delivery and optimising our logistics capabilities. This investment underscores our commitment to providing exceptional service to our customers while maintaining the highest standards of safety and efficiency.”
