THE REQUIREMENT
The main area of focus for Knights of Old was the distribution of retail goods from the Mole Valley Farmers’ Central Distribution Centre (CDC) in Lincolnshire. The operation required Knights of Old to distribute centrally secured products to retail outlets in the south west and the SCATS network of stores in the South East. This has now expanded to cover the East Midlands, East Anglia and the North East.
