Delamode International Logistics is pleased to announce the 10-year lease for a purpose-built Distribution Centre in Holland.

 

The 35,000 pallet storage and order fulfilment hub is being developed in Roosendaal, with partners EDCR, an established, privately owned 3PL, Forwarding and Fiscal Representation business.

The design and build project is scheduled for completion in Spring/Summer 2023, as part of a phased development with EDCR, forged from a successful partnership to maintain open supply chains for Delamode’s Clients, post Brexit.

Phase 1 involved operating daily shuttle services, carrying picked orders under bond, from Delamode International’s quayside DC in Southampton container port. Shuttles travelling to Roosendaal, clear EU Customs at EDCR’s existing facilities, for onward delivery by parcel and pallet carriers, to end customers across Continental Europe.

Shuttle services are now planned to link 3PL services, accommodated initially within EDCR’s recently developed DC. This next step designed to facilitate rapid expansion in Phase 2 with a purpose-built, large-scale Delamode Warehouse opening, in 2023.

Mike Thomas Client Services Director of Delamode International Logistics Ltd said, “From designing our Shuttle concept in 2020, to successful deployment from January 2021, we are evolving swiftly now to meet growing demand for twin stock holding supply chain services.

A compelling, market-led approach to sharpen our Clients’ vendor lead times to delivery, is driving development of Delamode International’s first 3PL venture on the Continent. The growth pole effect from the new logistics activities, will deliver faster order cycle times to market, delighting our end-customers.

We will also offer the benefit of information flow via a single Client portal, to enable efficient order processing in both UK and EU markets, served by DC’s in Southampton and Roosendaal”.

Wim Pauwels, CEO of Delamode parent company Xpediatorsaid: “The decision to take a long lease on the new Roosendaal warehouse reflects demand and the post Brexit strategies of our Clients to hold stock in both the UK and mainland Europe, which follows on from the recent opening of our new 200,000 sq. ft warehouse extension in Southampton. We are a growing business, so this extension together with investments we are making across the business is all part of maximising our organic growth potential.
