Forwarder stocks up on space for Xmas

[ December 21, 2020   //   ]

Freight forwarder WE Deane has freed up 1,000 pallet spaces at its Barking depot to further accommodate an incoming surplus expected over the holiday season. Following the closure of shops throughout November as a result of government measures, Britons for the first time will spend more online this Christmas than in the high street thanks to the lockdown of non-essential stores, it says. This major shift in consumer buying habits has led to an unprecedented spike for warehousing demands.
