London Road Storage Centre Announcement
Bullet Express is delighted to announce the acquisition of a new storage facility on London Road, Glasgow.
The new logistics centre will add a further 5,000 pallets to Bullet Express’s storage capacity, expanding its pallet storage capability by 25% to 26,000 pallets. The facility, which is 300 yards from the M74 motorway, also has a further 25,000 sq.ft. of yard for vehicle access. The new facility will result in the creation of up to 10 new jobs initially.
The move, which represents a significant, seven figure investment, comes following a surge in demand from both existing and new customers for storage services in response to tighter consumer delivery demand, following a 40% rise in online shopping as a result of Covid-19 lockdowns.
David McCutcheon, co-founder and Joint Chief Executive Officer at Bullet Express, said:
“We’re building a Scottish logistics force to be reckoned with at Bullet Express. This new facility increases our storage capacity by nearly 25% and positions us better than ever before to respond to our customers’ needs. Connectivity is fundamentally important to our customers now and this location, right next to the M74, means we can get their products moving faster than ever before.”
The building’s height, at over 12.5 metres, will enable racked storage, 6 pallets high.
Bullet Express is investing in high-capacity racking, with narrow aisle configuration and semi-automated picking utilising man-up fork-lifts.
John McKail, Managing Director at Bullet Express, said:
“There is a shortage of quality logistics storage facilities across the UK and this investment provides Bullet Express with further scale in this growing sector. We’re installing the latest technology to maximise the capacity that it provides and ensuring we can locate and access our customers’ products faster and more efficiently than ever before in order to provide the just-in-time delivery service they need.”
