Delamode International Logistics Limited is delighted to announce the 10-year lease for a new, purpose built 180,000 sq. ft (35,000 pallet spaces) storage, fulfilment and distribution warehouse in Roosendaal, Netherlands. The build is due to be complete in March 2023, in the meantime Delamode has agreed to take 6,500 pallet spaces in a partner warehouse for 12 months, situated adjacent to the new build site.
“This opportunity via EDCR at Roosendaal is unique. Working with EDCR, Delamode is now able to develop a Western European logistics hub in an optimal location, with a partner capable of providing the expertise, resources and recruitment assistance to deliver a phased approach. EDCR has excellent synergy in terms of business fit and shares the same Group values of customer focus and premium service delivery,” commented Mike Thomas, Client Services Director at Delamode International Logistics.
This move was prompted by the need for a proactive Continental European solution for current Clients post-Brexit. Essentially the primary objective is to continue maintaining the shortest possible time to bring products to market. After careful research and planning, it was concluded that splitting stock between the UK and mainland Europe is the best solution.
“The decision to take a long lease on this warehouse reflects demand and the post Brexit strategies of our clients to hold stock in both the UK and mainland Europe and 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,” added Wim Pauwels, CEO of Delamode parent company Xpediator.
This agreement is a Partnership with EDCR, an established, privately owned 3PL, Forwarding and Fiscal Representation business, operating in Roosendaal. The Clients have welcomed the efforts and commitment of everyone at Delamode to ensure they continue trading with their EU customers via a jointly developed UK/EU shuttle service linked with EDCR’s Fiscal Representation services. This has delighted Delamode’s Clients and strengthened Client trust to facilitate a European reach with successful supply chain services.
