Driven by their commitment to invest in the future of not only the organisation but the local area too, Chard based transport and logistics company, C&D South West, are taking their next step as an organisation by purchasing an additional warehousing site based in Martock, Somerset.


Founded in 1987, C&D have been providing quality distribution to clients for almost 35 years. They offer a guaranteed 24-hour delivery service to every UK postcode every day, with 96% of their business being palletised distribution for customers based within a 40-mile radius of their HQ.


With many customers based in the South West of England, transporting their goods across the UK & Europe, C&D have continuously provided excellent service and support to both customers and staff over the past three unprecedented years. Now, with another successful yet challenging year passing by, the organisation is looking forwards to investing in the future and further growing its business.


Based in the village of Martock, a hub of service, manufacturing and distribution businesses in Somerset, the new site has been purchased by C&D to expand their existing service offering and bring a plethora of new and exciting opportunities for growth, both within the business and the surrounding area. With this new venture, C&D hopes to supply a surplus of new jobs through the expansion of their fleet and service offering, consequently enabling them to better serve both current and new customers.

Lorna Hammond, C&D’s Managing Director said,


“It’s with great pleasure to announce the addition of our new yard at Martock. With this new facility, C&D have made their next big step into investing in the future. This will allow us to further expand our service offering to customers with additional storage and warehousing capacity, alongside an expansion of yard space to grow our vehicle fleet for future work.”


“After battling through the past few years adapting to life with Covid-19, C&D has continued to stay strong and resilient. With increased reliance on our transport services, these past few years gave us the push we needed to expand our services in order to continue providing a 5-star service for each and every client. We’re both excited and honoured to reach this achievement, and hope that this new business venture will open new doors for not only us as a business, but for the people of Martock and the wider Somerset community too.”


The new site boasts a 26,728 sq ft expansion of warehousing, yard and office space as well as a healthy amount of future job opportunities for the local community, which currently has a population of just under 5,000.
