Fullers Logistics, a specialist multi-channel fulfilment and distribution services provider based in the heart of the Thames Valley, has opened a new site in Bordon, Hampshire that will enable it to expand its services across the South of England.
The new warehouse facility, supported by a dedicated team of drivers, operational support and management staff has been opened by Fullers as a result of significant growth and demand from B2C and B2B clients for its multi-channel warehousing and fulfilment services.
"In the last 12 to 18 months we've seen a considerable increase of enquiries and new business from e-commerce retailers seeking support for their logistics operations," comments Tony Dempsey, Divisional Managing Director at Fullers Logistics. "With UK e-commerce sales expected to reach £70.75 billion* in 2017 and no doubt increasing in the next three years, we wanted to ensure that our business was investing in an additional and dedicated e-commerce fulfilment site to accommodate this existing and future growth."
The new facility in Bordon is an extension of Fullers' existing dedicated and multi-user warehouse operations based in Slough, which provide 3rd party logistics services to customers such as BMW UK, Pots & Co. and The Library of Fragrance. From the multi-user site, Fullers will be able to support multiple clients under one roof and offer them a tailored and flexible fulfilment solution including storage, pick, pack, shipping and even returns handling.
"We are passionate about ensuring the best possible service for our clients and proactively review all aspects of the operations we undertake to identify areas where we can improve productivity, increase efficiency and uncover cost savings. The new Bordon site is a great example of how our business is evolving to meet the present and future needs of our customers and we are excited about the potential that it offers to continue the expansion of our business across the South," concludes Dempsey.
