Aldi Launches Plans for New U.K. Warehouse
COALVILLE, U.K. - Grocery retailers are getting creative with their expansion strategies, honing in on distribution centers (DC) to deliver on a national scale. Aldi, for example, is continuing to tackle growth overseas by rolling out plans for a new 1.3 million square-foot warehouse in the U.K. This new DC is expected to create 750 jobs in the area.
According to a report by DerbyshireLive, Aldi has officially submitted plans for this new massive facility. In addition to the extensive square footage dedicated to the warehouse, Aldi has plans for new offices to be built on the 72-acre plot of land.
The news source also noted that the new DC will feature sustainable materials and solar panels on the roof. The chain commented, saying that the facility will be a “high spec, high quality, semi-automated, logistic warehouse distribution centre.”
