Whistl signs leases on new sites

Due to strong growth in demand, delivery management company Whistl has announced it has taken leases on 450,000 square feet of warehouse space to be used as fulfilment and contact centres.

The first unit is the 3000 square foot Belkin House at Express Business Park in Rushden, expanding the company’s footprint there.

It is also opening a new fulfilment centre at Northampton GPark. This site was chosen thanks to its logistics ‘Golden Triangle’ location with access to the M1, M40, M6 and M40 that puts 90% of England and Wales’ population within four hours of the site. This will allow Whistl’s online retail clients a later cut off time for next day delivery.

Nick Wells, CEO Whistl, said: “Through Whistl Fulfilment we are bringing our people, our operational excellence and reputation for first class customer management to medium sized retailers who require an agile and scalable partner who can manage every aspect of the fulfilment process from placing an order  to delivery to the consumer. We have a range of proven flexible and customisable services available depending on the requirements of the retailer.

“We understand that fulfilment and delivery is part of the brand experience for consumers and everyone within the company is passionate about doing the best we can to ensure that we deliver on the retailers brand promise.”
