Gregory Distribution, the British distribution, storage and logistics company has announced that it is cutting 100 jobs across a number of its sites across the UK.

The company’s managing director said that it was necessary to review the business because there was a major reduction in demand for the company’s services in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.

It is the second time that the company, in 2020, has to reduce its workforce. This job cuts come after the 50 redundancies made in February.

Gregory Distribution has a long history: it was founded in 1919 in Devon, south west England with a single Ford Model T truck. Currently it has over 750 vehicles and 36 logistics hubs across the UK and it employs 2,700 people.
