Seko Logistics continues pace in UK
Seko to open new logistics centre at Heathrow.
July 8, 2014
SEKO Logistics is keeping pace with phenomenal growth in UK retailers’ online sales by investing in a further 152,000 sqf logistics centre to support its omni-channel services for global fulfilment, delivery management, returns solutions and ecommerce development and design.
The new location in Milton Keynes follows the opening of a similar size logistics centre in Northampton last year and the launch last October of a dedicated omni-channel facility in Cranbury, New Jersey, for British retail brands starting out in the U.S. market. In the coming weeks, SEKO Logistics will also open a new centre at Heathrow Airport.
Keith O’Brien, SEKO Logistics’ Group Managing Director, said: “Online sales generated by UK retailers from international markets are forecast to grow sevenfold to £28 billion ($48 billion) by 2020 and already stand at £4 billion a year. Analysis shows that international sales growth is dramatically outpacing the domestic market and will increase from its current level of 14 per cent of total online sales to 40 per cent over the next six years. We’ve worked with retailers and e-tailers for over a decade and have focused our investment in facilities, technology, people and services to enable them to respond to new consumer buying trends and fast track their way into the $1 trillion global ecommerce market.”
