Yodel plans for a new super hub

Yodel

Yodel has announced plans for a long-term strategic investment in a new super hub in Northern England, to support the company’s growth.

The investmentwhich aims to protect all existing jobs while also creating new job opportunities for the wider region, will see a five-year transition from the existing Shaw hub, near Rochdale. The upgrade is in response to growing parcel volumes, triggered by a series of new client wins and the dramatic increase in consumer demand for online retail, which has seen unprecedented growth during the last four months as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. 

Mike Hancox, Chief Executive Officer of Yodel, commented, “As we look to Yodel’s long-term future, it is necessary to take strategic decisions which benefit the businessour people, clients and customers. That is why we are announcing plans now for a new super hub in Northern England to take Yodel to the next phase of its growth journey. This represents an important upgrade to our current operations – creating more opportunities across the regionswhilst cementing Yodel’s position as the leading independent parcel carrier in the UK.”
