Ocado to increase local distribution hubs on urban fringe

Ocado to increase local distribution hubs on urban fringe

Ocado is  planning to extend their list of a dozen local distribution hubs on the urban fringe as they step up their last-mile logistics infrastructure.

The online grocery business, which has partnership deals with Morrisons and John Lewis, is understood to be looking for 2-3 acre sites within reach of larger centres of population. The sites will take smallish warehouses – perhaps up to 30,000 sq ft – along with parking and care for the local fleet of delivery vans.
Colliers International are believed to be advising Ocado.
Ocado recently announced summer trading had taken sales volumes up 17 per cent.
