Branching Out(base) – Backline Secures 2nd Transport Hub

Andover Outbase 1

Hello Andover!

Exciting times – Backline has secured the lease on a new site in Andover (Walworth Ind. Est.). The site will undergo development ready for use as our second Outbase facility, complimenting our Exeter Outbase site.


It offers capacity for at least 40 vehicles and, subject to final sign off, will also be housing a frozen storage pod. This will facilitate a cross-docking operation for a major international logistics partner. This will run alongside existing contracts with other household names including Travis Perkins.



The site has been unused for a number of years, so there is a bit of clearing up to do, which is already in progress. The on-site building, designated as a driver reception and rest area, will be complimented by a manned security building at the main vehicle entrance.


A former coal merchant yard, on the opposite side of the building to the HGV parking area there is sufficient space which, with some minor alterations, will provide parking for around 25 cars in addition to the on-road parking available in the vicinity of the site.


In addition to the tidy-up we will be installing the main utilities, security lighting and CCTV.



The site is currently semi operational, running five tractor/trailer combinations on the Travis Perkins contract on both day and night shifts. Full operational capacity is scheduled for December 2018.
