Whistl to open super depot in Bolton in Spring 2017

No primary category set

Whistl, one of the largest postal operators in the UK, is to open a new super depot in Bolton. 500 jobs will be created at the Logistics North development which is expected to open late Spring 2017.

The new site will enable Whistl to consolidate their existing Leeds and Warrington operations into one site that has 33% greater capacity for future expansion of their existing mail, packet and parcel and ecommerce business.

Whistl chose the 224,938 square foot warehouse at Logistics North, Bolton, due to its immediate access onto Junction 4 of the M61 and, by combining two existing depots onto one site, it will be able to improve efficiencies in their operations. The state of the art building has 4 level access doors, 20 dock levellers, 50 trailer parking spaces, 31 loading positions and 222 car parking spaces.

Whistl currently handles 3.8 billion items per year and are targeting eBay and Amazon sellers with their packets and parcels services. They offer a single collection for all of your business post with no pre-sortation required and timed collections to suit your business.
