Confex reopens Central Distribution Centre

After a short closure due to the coronavirus outbreak, buying group Confex has made the decision to reopen its Central Distribution Centre in May.

The operation will be offering an extended credit facility to wholesalers, presenting a mixed pallet drop across FMCG & foodservice suppliers at wholesaler pricing.

Director James Loffet said: “We are pleased to be able to relaunch the Central Distribution service now with an extended credit facility. All our suppliers have been very supportive and we look forward to now continuing the growth we have experienced during our 12 years of trading.”

“The new improved service offering extended credit along with range extensions will be key for our customers to help them get back on their feet following Covid-19,” he added.

The Central Distribution Centre is a facility strategically situated in the Midlands in order to provide suppliers, who previously had a minimum drop policy, with significant economic advantages in delivering in bulk to it.

It allows Confex to provide members with the ability to order in smaller quantities than would be possible direct with the supplier – helping cash flow and stock planning in the process.
