ArrowXL extends capacity at Wigan site

ArrowXL, the two-man home delivery specialist, has completed work on its £1.7 million high bay pallet racking system at its Wigan warehouse. This will double the existing capacity at its delivery hub.

The 15 metre high racking system has 17,000 pallet spaces. This increases the overall storage capacity to 34,000 spaces in total. The construction of the racking system began last year and the new high bay racking system includes upgraded flooring, new lighting systems and sprinklers for fire prevention – after the fire in Worcester this is particularly important to ArrowXL.

The Wigan site has been part of ArrowXL’s network since March 2013.

ArrowXL currently has a 460-strong team based in Wigan – but, with the increased capacity, the company is now looking to create a number of new jobs.

Paul Tyson, Commercial Director at ArrowXL, said: “This substantial investment will play a key role in our strategic plans for future growth. It signifies our commitment to constantly strengthen our infrastructure across the UK, in order to improve the current services we provide to our existing clients, as well as attracting new business. In addition to our portfolio of award-winning two-man delivery services, we now have the opportunity to provide an increased range of warehousing and fulfilment solutions to retailers and manufacturers of any size.”

With its niche of delivering large goods to online customers around the UK, ArrowXL a small yet important player in the UK delivery sector. As with many of the bigger players it is also benefitting from the growth of e-commerce here.
