Ocado set to widen customer base through new distribution centre

Linked InTwitterFacebookeCard
Online grocer Ocado is moving towards taking its service to a wider area of the UK, according to reports.

Property industry journal Estates Gazette says that Ocado is on the verge of agreeing to buy 35 acres at the Birch Coppice Business Park in Tamworth, Staffordshire.

Planning permission is understood to have been gained and the acquisition of the site is expected to be agreed very shortly. The site could open by late 2011 or 2012.

The new centre will mean Ocado can widen its distribution to northern and central areas of the UK, going live to a new set of customers.

The development will fulfill a committment set out at the time of Ocado's stockmarket flotation to invest some of the money raised in a new fulfillment centre.
