E-commerce boom sees Europa Warehouse announce further investment


The growing shift in consumer spending habits as a result of Covid-19 has made way for an e-commerce boom, driving record demand for warehouse space. To cater for the increase in volume, specialist 3pl logistics provider, Europa Warehouse announces further investment cementing its position as an industry leader.

Just last year, the division of ambitious independent logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group, launched its £60m, state-of-the-art, 750,000 sq. m 3pl facility in Corby. The new 25-acre site allowed Europa Warehouse to efficiently move and expand its logistics operations, providing optimal quality and value for its customer base, which includes a number of e-commerce and blue chip online retailers.

Now the division has announced further investment, launching a brand new animation to showcase its expertise in 3pl logistics. With cutting edge bespoke systems, a global distribution network and first-call facilities, from the moment goods arrive at Europa warehouse facilities, to the moment they are dispatched – the team deliver a quick, robust and cost-effective service.

Maria Torrent-March, Logistics Director comments: “The past year has certainly been challenging. From opening our £60m Corby warehouse on time despite being in the midst of the pandemic, to catering for the huge increase in volumes over the festive season, and now managing the ongoing challenges of the growth in e-commerce – we remain dedicated to delivering a high quality and efficient service for our customers.

“Looking ahead, continued investment into innovative products and team efficiencies are vital to meet the increase in demand. That’s why we’ve launched our new animation – to showcase to customers the scale of what we can deliver and instil the message that we are a trusted logistics supplier here to support businesses at a time where we are seeing unprecedented growth in e-commerce.”

Europa’s new Corby facility doubles Europa Warehouse’s logistics portfolio and has been constructed to a high-quality specification, including above market standard 18 metre heights to facilitate three floors of mezzanines. The ground floor alone of Europa’s new Corby warehouse is equivalent to seven premier league football pitches with 715,000 ft2 dedicated to logistics and 100,000 pallet spaces and to maximise the height of the building, racking has been built to nine levels and utilises the very latest VNA technology.

Europa Warehouse provides a range of value-added capabilities including e-commerce fulfilment, production services, inventory management, packing, labelling, special deliveries, final assembly, quality control and critical parts management.

Europa Worldwide Group is an ambitious independent logistics operator with six divisions – Europa Road, Europa Air & Sea, Europa Showfreight, Europa Warehouse, Europa Contact Centre and Continental Cargo Carriers. Europa was recently featured in The Sunday Times Top Track 250 for the third time.
