GMB SAYS KFC ‘WINGING IT’ AS COUNCIL REVEALS CRISIS HIT CHICKEN STORAGE HUB IS NOT REGISTERED
Council confirms new DHL cold storage hub has not been granted registration required to operate.
The revelation that the storage hub at the centre of KFC’s chicken delivery problems has not yet been granted registration shows the shambles the company’s operations are in, the GMB union said today.
Rugby Borough Council confirmed the cold storage facility used by DHL, which took over KFC deliveries last week, had not yet been registered.
GMB has said the crisis that has engulfed KFC’s UK operations this week could have been avoided if warnings had been heeded months ago 
The union wrote to the company in October warning over its decision to switch its deliveries from the food delivery specialists Bidvest Logistics to DHL .
Mick Rix, GMB National Officer said:
“It’s taken days to uncover the real truth about the shambles at this DHL hub that has plunged KFC’s supply chain into total chaos. They’ve been winging it.”
“It’s clear that the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand’s doing in this operation. It’s the company’s colonels who need to be held to account for this mess, not the workers who have lost time and money through no fault of their own.”
