The centre, which is being increased to a 100,000 sq ft logistics facility, will be fully operational at the end of May and will provide DSV customers with additional capability and capacity to add to the company’s existing resources in the region. It has been designed specifically to further streamline customer service levels and reinforce DSV’s comprehensive domestic network in the UK.
Jesper Hansen, DSV Road Limited Managing Director says “ We are very pleased with our new Immingham facility. We have more than 100 excellent staff in Immingham and they are all very excited to move into the new office building. The team is responsible for a full range of operational services, sales and customer service. With this investment we are consolidating, as well as future proofing, DSV’s position in Immingham. This is really good news and sends a strong and positive signal to our highly valued clients and employees.”
Karl Timmis, DSV Road Limited Director of Operations, explains the motivation behind this expenditure: “The expansion of the Immingham warehouse and the investment into these excellent new facilities is a result of the clear potential we recognise in this region. Providing great customer service through operational excellence will continue to be the focus of the team as well as building new relationships within the local community. We look forward to seeing further developments in this important area over the coming year.”
Strategically located on the east coast, Immingham has also become increasingly significant as a gateway to Scandinavia, Germany and the Benelux countries. Karl explains: “We are reinforcing the strong links we already value with the Nordic markets. We are confident that companies in this area will welcome our cutting edge facilities and daily services. We are also anticipating increased European road groupage in the coming months.”
As well as serving overseas markets, Immingham has become an important location within the DSV UK domestic network, linking through the main hub in Tamworth to other centres in Glasgow, Chester Le Street, Manchester, Bristol and Purfleet. Nick Trencher, Divisional General Manager UK Domestic, explains: “The purpose behind enhancing our site on the east coast is to service our clients more frequently. As of the 3rd January 2017, we have daily collections and deliveries throughout the regions of Yorkshire, Humberside, Doncaster and Lincolnshire and we are already seeing positive results from this investment.”
