E-fulfilment services provider Whistl is to open three new depots, including one in Plymouth, creating 200 jobs.
The largest building is a 300,000 sq ft site within Magna Park South, Lutterworth. This site is Whistl’s largest dedicated 3PL logistics and distribution facility situated within the Midlands’ ‘Golden Triangle' of logistics providers.
When complete, it will have parking for 41 HGVs, with 28 dock levelers and two level access points. It is built to operate at a 15 per cent lower carbon footprint and has 12 electric charging points.
The second 133,000 sq ft depot is adjacent to Whistl’s Northampton, Moulton Park depot which was opened in the autumn of 2020 and quickly reached capacity by the end of the year.
The final 35,000 sq ft depot in Plymouth is for Clientbase Fulfilment which Whistl acquired in 2020 and increases the number of depots in Devon to three with 135,000 sq ft capacity.
200 jobs are expected to be created across the three new sites.
Chief executive Nick Wells said: "We are significantly investing in capacity for Whistl Fulfilment which is being driven by new customer demand for our services.
"Filling Northampton in a matter of weeks of opening demonstrates the attractiveness of the Whistl Fulfillment proposition. We now have the scale and flexibility to meet the increasingly complex demands of our e-commerce customers.
"These new additions to our portfolio demonstrate our commitment to reducing our carbon impact and leading to longer term benefits for colleagues, customers and the communities we work within."
