Flexible structure delivers Oakland International’s supply chain opportunity

Oakland International, the specialist multi temperature supply chain operator which supplies chilled, frozen and ambient food to the UK and Ireland’s supermarket chains, has come up with a temporary solution from Spaciotempo to expand their short-term stock holding.

Oakland International Chief Executive and Co- Founder Dean Attwell explained: “During this period of uncertainty surrounding our exit from the EU, the need for Oakland customers to extend their existing stockholding is becoming an everyday requirement.

“I’d seen the Spaciotempo semi-permanent buildings during a visit to one of our customers in Ireland and was so impressed with the quality of the structure I could see it working for our Redditch facility, particularly because of its classification as a non-permanent construction.”

Oakland International hired Spaciotempo’s 15m x 60m Neivalu-style warehouse on a 6m eave. The temporary warehouse features a thermo roof and gables, 40mm thick steel-clad sandwich panels, three personnel doors, one electric roller shutter door and 22 90W LED lights. Oakland has the option to purchase the building at the end of the contract.
