Fashion and lifestyle logistics company Bleckmann has opened a new fulfilment centre in Swindon to expand its UK logistics footprint.
With the new multi-user site, Bleckmann will serve current and new clients by adding 80,000 square feet of UK based storage capacity.
Mark van Onna, General Manager Real Estate at Bleckmann, said: “We have quickly outgrown the capacity of the current Swindon operation.
“Therefore, we were looking for additional capacity in the area to further accommodate the growth of our existing clients, as well as onboarding of new clients, whilst utilising the skilled experience of the Swindon team.”
Reinardt van Oel, Chief Operations Officer Belgium & United Kingdom at Bleckmann, added: “We will fit out the facility with a mix of high bay pallet racking and working areas the next months.
“We receive a lot of e-commerce fulfilment requests and international omnichannel clients want to establish a foothold in the UK.
“From this new distribution centre in Swindon, Bleckmann will be able to provide all kinds of warehousing services including VAS and returns.”
