Bleckmann, a leading Dutch provider of supply chain management services to the fashion and lifestyle market with customers such as Gymshark and Superdry, among many others, has opened a new fulfillment center in Lutterworth, its fourth location in the U.K. The brand new building at Magna Park has a floor area of 19,000 square meters and a clear height of fifteen meters, giving a floor capacity of 52,000 square meters. Increasing demand for logistics solutions in the U.K. and continental Europe is the reason for opening this new fulfillment facility, Bleckmann said in a press release. “With the opening of this new sustainable (BREEAM Excellent) distribution center, we are nearly doubling our total capacity in the logistics heart of the U.K.,” commented Mark van Onna, Bleckmann’s general manager of real estate. From this new facility, Bleckmann will serve existing and new (international) customers in their B2B and B2C channels in Europe and beyond. The building is already in operation and will be equipped with modern automation solutions in the future. In the medium term, the opening of the distribution center is expected to create up to 300 new jobs in the region.
