Steve Hicks, Contract Logistics Director North Europe, for Noatum Logistics. “Noatum’s distribution capability integrates with our International supply Chain (ISC) product to provide customers with a true end-to-end supply chain solution.”
“Purchase order, vendor and freight management, segues into contract logistics and eCommerce solutions, with full visibility and granular reporting.”
“Continued growth of online sales will drive demand for pick and pack space, which is why we are forecasting that this new development will be filled shortly after completion and will almost entirely be taken over by existing customers.”
“When fully operational, the new Noatum Logistics facility will be capable of processing 50,000 + pcs a day, equivalent to 3 million + parcels a year.”
