Rudolph and Hellmann Logistics have announced 121 job losses at its Groveley Lane site in Longbridge. The logistics firm that stored and shipped out parts to MG Rover dealers has closed following the collapse of the car maker. Graham Bushby, one of the joint administrators, said that after trying to find a way to keep the business going the directors had no choice but to make the company insolvent after the collapse of its major customer, MG Rover.
