Yantra Fulfilment is a newly formed third party logistics (3PL) provider. Based just off junction 24 of the M1, the company has options on more than 100,000sq ft of space in the Midlands with a view to having 10 fulfilment centres strategically positioned across the UK.
Aimed at providing a flexible and cost effective fulfilment service, Yantra has invested heavily in the latest warehouse management technology to cater for the sharp rise in ecommerce, as well as traditional large volume palletised orders.
Heading up Yantra is commercial director Steve Smith, an experienced logistics professional, who has held a number of senior positions in warehousing and fulfilment over the past 20 years.
He said: “Consumer purchasing habits are changing, which means that warehousing and fulfilment needs to adapt to meet these new, more demanding, requirements. We’re helping businesses of all sizes compete in an ecommerce-driven market with our low cost fulfilment solution that offers unbeatable levels of speed and accuracy when it comes to order processing.”
At the heart of Yantra is a world class warehouse management system, ensuring stock is always in the right place at the right time for super-efficient picking, while all information is available in real-time, online. There are no up-front costs and customers are only charged based on actual monthly storage and activities.
The company has plans to be able to offer more than half a million square feet of warehouse space, covering 95 percent of the UK mainland population within an hour and a half drive time.
Steve added: “This is a bold new venture that brings class leading fulfilment to businesses of all shapes and sizes, through state-of-the-art technology at affordable prices.”
