WATCH: FMDC’s eFulfilment zone supports online shopping surge

Jul 1, 2021 | Article, News

 

Globally, businesses are surging into the online space as a main sales and fulfilment channel at an ever faster rate. While this acceleration can pose challenges to some logistics partners, the scale of the Felixstowe Mega Distribution Centre’s  eFulfilment zone and breadth of its ecommerce offer will enable the facility to perfectly support this commercial evolution.

Spread across four mezzanine floors, the 200,000 sq ft eFulfilment zone is actually larger than many entire warehouses. However, the scale of the space is only one aspect of the competitive advantage the FMDC’s eFulfiment capabilities will deliver its ecommerce customers.

“Yes, at this scale of course we can accommodate and process large volumes of customer orders”, says David Barry Uniserve’s Director of Warehouse & Transport.

“However, what’s equally exciting is that in this brand new, state-of-the-art space, we are able to work with our customers to provide bespoke, automated, integrated eFulfilment solutions to meet their needs. We take our responsibility to ensure our customers’ customers receive a seamless, world-class service very seriously”, he continued.

Take a look at the eFulfiment mezzanine floors below:

Across its full 750,000 sq ft capacity, the FMDC also has:

  • a 100,000 sq ft cold store
  • 18,000 pallet spaces of frozen storage
  • bonded storage (container and pallet)
  • 400,000 sq ft marshalling and narrow / wide pallet racking
  • 80,000 ambient pallet spaces
