GEODIS to double contract logistics footprint in the UK 16 November 2021

Aims to become a top 15 UK operator within five years

With a total of 110,000 m2 new warehousing space opened in October across two new sites in the UK, GEODIS has significantly increased its contract logistics operation in Europe’s third biggest retail market.

Driven by demand for contract logistics services as a consequence of the retail eCommerce boom that is no less apparent in the UK market than elsewhere in Europe, GEODIS has opened two new facilities: 40,000 m2 warehouse in the North of England in Doncaster and a 70,000 m2 logistics site at Lutterworth in the East Midlands region, providing employment for nearly 600 (1,200 during the peak season).

Established in response to the increase in sales volumes of a high-profile international online retailer, the facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art automated technology, 18-meter, high-density racking and provide a combined capacity for processing up to 1.5 million units per week.

GEODIS plans to double its contract logistics operations in the UK, in-line with its growth plans to become a top 15 operator in the market within the next five years.

Both locations are well-located in terms of access to national road networks and distribution to centres of population across the country will therefore be facilitated. Doncaster as well as Lutterworth are in areas of concentrated logistics and warehousing activity.
