Xpediator (AIM: XPD), is pleased to announce that Regional Express Limited has signed a 10-year lease on attractive commercial terms for a new 19,289 sq. ft warehousing facility offering port-centric logistics services in Southampton.
Acquired by Xpediator in November 2017, Regional Express Limited is an international freight forwarding and courier company offering B2B groupage services as well as being an Amazon Global Selling Solution Provider. Since being acquired by the Xpediator Group, Regional Express Limited has expanded significantly using the enhanced buying power and wider services of the Group to grow revenues.
In particular, Regional Express Limited is developing its specialist e-commerce fulfilment services and the rationale for adding a further 19,289 sq. ft. of warehousing is to accommodate the evolving requirements of its current clients, whilst providing a facility to support the growth and acquisition of new e-commerce fulfilment related business.
The new warehousing and logistics facility is in an excellent location for road transport solutions, air courier companies and sea freight service providers with port-centric logistics possible as it is positioned less than 3 miles from the container port of Southampton, with quick links to both the M3 and M27 motorways.
The warehousing and logistics facility contains an office and private yard within the self-contained 1.15 acre site and also offers:
- racking for palletised freight storage;
- a mezzanine floor for e-Commerce fulfilment storage; and
- a fully-implemented Access Delta warehousing systems, resulting in automated, integrated storage and fulfilment service.
Regional Express Limited operates across Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia offering air courier services, road transport solutions, sea freight logistics and e-Commerce fulfilment services as an Amazon Global Selling Solution Provider as well as providing e-Commerce delivery for other e-tailers.
Managing Director of Regional Express Limited, Neil Curran said:
“The new warehousing and logistics facility reflects the growth in the business as well as positioning us to be able to meet future demand. Speed and efficiency are key to our UK fulfilment company and this new warehousing site will assist us in meeting these goals for both air courier and sea freight logistics services. The additional warehousing space also facilitates our strategic plans to further enhance our fulfilment services for current clients, whilst providing a platform to attract new clients within the e-commerce sector.
Xpediator, CEO of Xpediator PLC, Stephen Blyth, commented:
“We’re very pleased to see Regional Express Limited build on their strong performance and look forward to offering all our clients more efficient freight forwarding services. Since integration within the Xpediator Group in November 2017, Regional Express Limited has enhanced our ability to offer customers sea frieght logistics and air courier capabilities, and this new warehousing facility will be a further asset within the Group, one which may also prove additionally valuable should there be a hard Brexit.”
