Patrick McLoughlin described the project as a ‘Derby success story'. Starting Fresh Logistics in the middle of the recession and growing substantially year on year, to now moving to and creating the East Midlands Logistics Centre is a fantastic and recognizable achievement’.

Amanda Solloway MP stated ‘I was delighted to be invited to the opening of Fresh Logistics new depot in Derby. Not only was it great to be a part of this success story but you could sense the enthusiasm that team had for the project and the positive atmosphere that was generated throughout.  I found the building particularly inspiring and sensitively restored maintaining much of its heritage. I was particularly impressed that meetings rooms were named after members of the team- how cool is that’.
