New Citipost logistics and fulfilment division

Citipost Group company The Processing Centre (TPC) has announced plans to launch a division that provides a one-stop-shop for the firm’s logistics and fulfilment operations.

In a statement, Citipost said that the decision “follows the continuing exponential growth in the online marketplace “.

Citipost said: “From its 67,000 sq ft warehouse and processing centre at South Normanton’s Berristow Lane, the TPC arm of the business will build on the company’s already impressive reputation as a leader in global services.

“The Processing Centre will enable the business to increase its offering with flexible fulfilment and distribution solutions for international and domestic clients.

“Customers will benefit from a tailored process to meet their individual requirements as well as full end-to-end support – including data analysis, account management and an internal customer services function.”

The Managing Director of TPC is Bob Powner, who brings more than 25 years’ experience to the post and was formerly Processing and Linehaul Director at City Link.

“We are delighted to have launched a dedicated arm of TPC, which handles the sortation, routing and crucially distribution to final mile delivery providers to meet a customer’s individual requirements,” said Powner.

“Citipost already has a strong track record in fulfilment and final mile delivery of a range of items including catalogues and printed material and we are building on this market-leading position after identifying a growth opportunity in warehousing, fulfilment and despatch within other sectors.

“We are confident that TPC will provide an unbeatable service to our clients both here at home and overseas. The company has invested heavily in TPC to ensure that we are front of mind for customers looking for first-class service at a competitive price.”
