The traincare depot operated by Alstom at Longsight in Manchester is to receive around £1 million of investment in a bid to improve logistics and distribution, the company has announced.
Alstom Transport UK Managing Director of Regional, Intercity and Services Rob Whyte said it was a “major investment that will also bring a real change to the way that logistics and distribution are undertaken”.
The money will be spent as part of a plan to improve logistics and distribution, with work expected to start on the warehousing imminently for completion by the end of November. The new facility has been specially designed as a storage centre for the bogie workshop that was opened last month.
The latest investment is in addition to a £300,000 investment in Alstom’s parts and modernisation facility in Preston, which uses an automatic system that picks up parts in the warehouse for a quicker delivery.
