ILG Takes a Big Step into the Midlands

At the beginning of this year we saw an opportunity to take our first step beyond the South East and significantly increase our capacity to grow with our customers. We’re happy to announce that ILG Brackmills, our brand new warehouse in Northampton, is now open.

The new facility offers a big step forward in our ability to scale for new and existing customers, with features that provide a sizeable increase in speed and capacity. At 100,000 sq.ft, it is by far the biggest warehouse in our portfolio. That not only means more space for stock but also a much bigger loading area, with nine loading doors, each with dock levellers, and room to accommodate a stand trailer overnight. It means we can load faster and for longer.

Stock handling is streamlined by a best in class ‘put to light’ system and ‘print and apply’ labelling, and on-site reworking and kitting facilities mean we can package up and personalise to order, without breaking the work stream. At peak times we will be able to process 35,000 orders per day. The Midlands location also enables us to extend our carrier times from 6pm to 10pm.

Beauty brand Charlotte Tilbury was our first customer into ILG Brackmills when it opened in May and we are looking forward to welcoming other new business into the facility in September and October.

“I’m very happy to have moved from Sterling Park to Brackmills with ILG as it has improved our carrier options and cut-off times which has allowed us to deliver to our customers faster and provide them with enhanced delivery choices. With the new site at Brackmills being a newer build and a blank canvas, we have also been able to work with ILG to improve our flows to increase capacity and productivity and take advantage of the latest pick and pack technology.”
