What is a sustainable distribution centre?

The Sustainable Distribution Centre (SDC) is an innovative logistics solution which consolidates deliveries across Southampton, improving supply chain efficiency and helping to reduce congestion and pollution in the city.

The scheme, which we have operated since 2012 in conjunction with Southampton City Council, allows companies and public sector organisations in the area to consolidate their deliveries into the Sustainable Distribution Centre (SDC) warehouse, owned and operated by Meachers Global Logistics, and lower the number of deliveries made back into their business.

The SDC will allow
your business to:

Consolidate and lower the number of deliveries made to your business

Track and lower admin and resource needed to process deliveries

Allow deliveries to be made at quieter and more convenient times of the day

Lower your environmental impact and carbon footprint in the city

Our SDC warehouse is based on the outskirts of Southampton and within short distance of the international docks and cruise terminals.

It helps reduce heavy vehicle traffic movements in Southampton’s congested city centre and lower pollution levels in the city for residents and visitors.
