Whistl have announced that they are accelerating their expansion into e-fulfillment with the opening of three new fulfilment sites in Lutterworth, Northampton and Plymouth.
Of the three new fulfilment sites, Lutterworth will be home to the largest building, a 300,000 sq ft brand new site within Magna Park South. This site is Whistl’s largest dedicated 3PL logistics and distribution facility situated within the Midlands’ ‘Golden Triangle’ of logistics providers. The second largest is situated adjacent to Whistl’s Northampton, Moulton Park depot and the third depot is in Plymouth and is for Clientbase Fulfilment that Whistl acquired in 2020. 200 new jobs are expected to be created across the 3 new sites.
Whilsl now has 11 fulfilment sites across the UK with over 1.4m sq ft pick and pack and returns warehouse capability and is targeting medium sized B2C and B2B retailers with a single account managed end to end fulfilment solution.
“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.”
