WE Deane frees up space to meet freight surge

[ October 26, 2020   //   ]

Freight forwarder WE Deane has freed up 3,000 pallet spaces at its Barking main base to meet increased demand. The UK is currently in the midst of a nationwide capacity crunch, and the accommodation will help businesses meet continued demand caused by a hike in e-commerce volumes, nationwide panic buying and intense stockpiling due to Brexit on 31 December.  WE Deane is offering full warehousing, pick and pack, distribution and fulfilment services.

Managing director Robert Falconer commented: “With an estimated 25% of the UK now shopping online, storage space is now out a premium.  We are in the midst of a nationwide capacity crunch. Statistics show that e-commerce is set to continue to rise.  It is also highly likely that we are on the cusp of a further panic buying trend placing further pressure on the supply chains, with businesses stockpiling goods in order to cope with these increased volumes.”
