New warehouse facility is added to cargo-partner’s expanding UK operations

Leading international transport and logistics provider, cargo-partner, proudly announces the opening of its first warehouse facility in the UK, marking a significant milestone in its strategic expansion efforts.

Located next to one of cargo-partner’s existing offices in Basildon, the new 4,460 m² warehouse facility complements cargo-partner’s existing UK operational offices across Manchester, Bradford, and London. Equipped with dedicated areas for pallet storage, block storage, storage of small parts, picking/packing and other value added services (e.g. re-packing, re-labelling), the Basildon warehouse seamlessly integrates with cargo-partner’s global network. The warehouse will be manned by a team of dedicated professionals and provides a multi-functional road hub facilitating nationwide import, export, distribution and e-commerce services.

Fergal Keenan, Managing Director Ireland & UK, said: said: “We’re delighted to be continuing to deliver on our growth strategy, providing another great location for us to support our customers and partners. “While we have always offered warehousing services through partners, the Basildon facility represents our first cargo-partner managed warehousing facility in the UK. This strategic investment marks a significant milestone in our journey to provide end-to-end logistics solutions to our customers.”

Growth across UK and Ireland

cargo-partner’s expansion into Basildon and the introduction of this new warehouse facility follows a period of rapid growth in the country, with the company opening its fourth UK office opposite London Heathrow Airport in November 2023. Alongside a well-established presence in Dublin, Ireland, cargo-partner is well-positioned to support businesses of all sizes across the British Isles with their local and international trade requirements.

Strong presence in Europe

The Austrian-based logistics provider has traditionally had a very strong presence in Central and Eastern Europe and has recently substantially invested in expanding its footprint in Western Europe. The company has long established branch offices in Germany, Benelux, Sweden and Ireland, but has more recently expanded its network into the UK, Italy and Spain, ensuring cargo-partner is now represented in the most important markets in the region.

Global warehousing solutions

The new Basildon warehouse joins a portfolio of modern cargo-partner warehouses around the world, providing high quality services and reliability. cargo-partner already operates a dense network of warehouses with a total of over 300,000 m² of storage space throughout Europe, Southeast Asia, and the USA. Further significant logistics investments in Western Europe include the 10,000 m² iLogistics Center in Sottrum near Hamburg, Germany, as well as the 5,900 m² warehouse in Roermond, the Netherlands.
