Storage and Distribution Network APPROVED DISTRIBUTOR
MRC has a storage and distribution infrastructure that is both scalable and flexible. Ideally located on the west coast of Scotland near to Oban but avoiding the associated traffic congestion – arrive at the Connel Bridge on the A85 turn left, 6 miles to MRC straight off the main trunk road A828 from Oban to Ballachulish Bridge where the road joins the A82 to Fort William and the North or Glasgow and the Central belt and the South.
Storage and Distribution : Access to the MRC pier is also unrestricted for loading materials on or off vessel of up to 60m in length at a deep-water pier that has 5m of depth at low water. Timber, aggregates, sand and salt, fish food, seaweed and livestock (fish and animal) are all commodities that are regularly distributed from the MRC pier. In addition a slipway facility of varying depths (three-tiered) allows large landing craft-type vessels of up to 40m to discharge loads of timber and aggregate as well as providing a drive on and off capability. Storage : MRC has a unique range of features comprising industrial development potential, deep-water pier, slipways as well as approximately 25000 square metres (6acres) of covered facilities, available on the 50000sq m site. 25000sq m of outdoor area is available for storage of materials such as aggregate, timber, yacht storage and fish farm equipment. The site has an Industrial Class 3 designation for operational use throughout. This unique range of facilities provide an excellent range of existing features and infrastructure which is unrivalled in the Scottish Highlands.   Distribution :   The site operates a number of different commodities handling equipment, offering a fully flexible solution to materials handling and distribution to meet a wide range of customers requirements. Extensive warehousing facilities are available for rent or can be operated by MRC on behalf of a third party company as a managed service to provide flexibility to your business operations. MRC’s dedicated staff are already experienced in the use of picking lists, stock rotation, historical data and tracking with administration providing a seamless integration with new customers systems.   Local Network :  MRC is ideally located for West Coast distribution. It is located on Loch Creran, which is easily navigable by both smaller leisure vessels and large ocean going ships. The deep-water pier at the site also allows vessels to come alongside at all tides, and presents no problems for loading and unloading. The site is off the main trunk road (A828) from Oban to Ballachulish Bridge where the road joins the A82 to Fort William. Road access, therefore, is good to the North and the Highlands and to Glasgow and the central belt. These unique features make MRC a perfect distribution hub for the West Coast of Scotland. The site at Barcaldine is 12 miles North of Oban and two hours comfortable drive from Glasgow. It is also 6 miles from Oban Airport, which is suitable for recreational, private and commercial use.
