The warehouse and storage industry has experienced rapid change during recent years, as online retailing has changed the focus of many industry operators that are involved in the distribution network.
UK consumers’ appetite for shopping online surpasses that of most countries around the world and is likely to continue to expand over the coming years, providing further opportunity for industry operators.
The shift towards a contingent workforce is reflective of the fluctuating seasonal demands. Our vast candidate network and experience within this sector allows us to deploy temporary workers with ease, optimising performance through training and induction programmes. We mirror our client needs by providing 24-hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year support.

The spread of warehouse and storage locations is influenced by the distribution of economic activity, the location of trade terminals and logistics routes, and the location of end markets for the products being stored.
Many of the goods stored are part of a longer supply chain, it is therefore important that facilities are located near transport links to shorten the time it takes to move goods from the source to the destination.
Our location infrastructure reflects the geographical demand of this sector, with 9 large business centres strategically located, 10 satellite offices and 320 managed locations, we are well equipped to serve the demands of this sector.
