Why is the Midlands better for ecommerce fulfilment?
13th November 2023
Whether you sell online exclusively in the UK, Europe or globally, using an East Midlands based ecommerce fulfilment solution can give you an edge.
Just look at where Amazon is focusing its ecommerce fulfilment
The epicentre of UK Amazon operations is next to East Midlands Airport in a massive million square foot fulfilment centre (the largest on the SEGRO Logistics Park), which is located at East Midlands Gateway (EMG). EMG also incorporates a 50-acre intermodal rail freight terminal which operates 24/7 and is able to accommodate up to sixteen 775m freight trains per day. It's where the M1, A50 and A42 meet, placing it at the heart of the UK road infrastructure. With immediate north, south, east and west access for road transport, it's dubbed the golden triangle of UK logistics. If you were still unconvinced about this relevance to ecommerce fulfilment it's also the location of Shop Direct, home to Very.co.uk and Littlewoods.com, where they have had a massive state-of-the-art fulfilment centre built solely for digital retail.
