CEVA Logistics has opened a shared-user warehouse at the new iPort intermodal logistics park on the outskirts of Doncaster in the UK.
The 215,800 sq ft facility offers a number of features including VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) and gravity fed racking which enable a high density of stock to be stored via a ‘first in, first out’ system. The site can accommodate up to 28,000 pallets and as well as being adjacent to a 35 acre rail terminal, offers parking bays for 110 heavy goods vehicles in its 55 meter yard.
Operating the facility on behalf of a number of consumer and retail customers CEVA is able to provide warehousing, planning, transport, administration, customized value-added services and cross-docking functions from iPort. The site will begin by operating 24/6 and includes other features such as an in-rack sprinkler system and TAPA security (Transported Asset Protection Association) to ensure the safety of all stock.
CEVA’s Executive Vice President UK, Ireland and Nordics, Michael O’Donoghue, commented: “Situated at Junction 3 of the M18 motorway, iPort gives us great access to the whole of the north of the UK enabling us to receive and deliver to customers in timely fashion”.
O’Donoghue added: “This is an important investment for CEVA. It is a statement of the confidence we have in our business and most importantly, it will bring tangible benefits to our customers through economies of scale, shared resources and CEVA’s industry leading technology.”
