3PL undertook a rigorous tender process culminating in the award of the contract and in the integration of the Welspun UK account into its brand-new flagship Retail Distribution Centre in Wigan. To accommodate the operation approximately 30,000 sq. ft of dedicated warehousing space has been allocated within its multi-user facility along with the necessary recruitment to support the additional activity.

The new facility has been designed to offer tailored solutions to fast-growing multichannel retailers.
