UPDATE: Carlsberg abandons NDC plans

UPDATE: Carlsberg abandons NDC plans

Carlsberg’s decision to abandoned plans for a new 600,000 sq ft Northamptonshire warehouse came as a “bolt from the blue” on Monday, insiders have told SHD Logistics.

The decision - which came direct from bosses in Copenhagen - has left the UK side of the business stunned, sources claim.

Yesterday in emerged that the Danish brewer had walked away from plans for the 600,000 sq ft warehouse on a 28-acre site at Brackmills, Northampton.

They agreed a deal with developers Roxhill a little less than twelve months ago.

The reversal is the latest in a long saga which has seen Carslberg searching for a new national distribution centre for five years.

Nobody was available to comment at Roxhill whose planning application for the Carlsberg development is still proceeding - for now.
