Yodel unveils plan for Northern Super Hub
14 September 2020
The parcel carrier says a long-term strategic investment will replace the Shaw hub, to the North East of Manchester.
Yodel aims to protect all existing jobs while also creating new job opportunities for the wider region. The transition will take five years.
The upgrade is in response to growing parcel volumes, triggered by a series of new client wins and the dramatic increase in consumer demand for online retail, which has been turbo charged during the last four months as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold.
Yodel has updated employees, colleagues, union reps and local stakeholders on the plans and will consult with these groups to identify a new site which is well-connected and provides room for sustained growth.
Yodel CEO Mike Hancox said: “As we look to Yodel’s long-term future, it is necessary to take strategic decisions which benefit the business, our people, clients and customers.
“That is why we are announcing plans for a new super hub in the North of England to take Yodel to the next phase of its growth journey. This represents an important upgrade to our current operations.”
