Retail DC for Wigan
13 November 2019
3PL has opened a flagship fulfilment centre in Wigan.
The new retail DC is the latest addition to the firm’s warehouse footprint, which now boasts over 250,000 sq ft of Grade A warehousing across multiple sites both nationally and internationally.
A 10-year lease has been agreed and the company will also bring an array of new jobs to the area with plans to hire more full-time employees and additional temp employees during peak season.
The company said that the increased capacity will usher in a move to around the clock 24-hour operations and the introduction of extended cut off times for next day delivery and enhanced same day dispatch.
3PL founder & MD Ian Walker says: “We recently secured our North West headquarters on a 10-year lease and the decision to mirror the new site on a 10-year lease was a logical decision. Both existing and future customers are at the heart of our long term thinking and it is essential we create an environment for them to scale on the back of our infrastructure commitments.”
