Walker Logistics increases workforce by 20%
Online fulfilment specialist Walker Logistics from UK has increased the size of its workforce by more than 20% following an upsurge in the omni-channel order volumes that it is processing at its Berkshire multi-user storage facility.
Charlie Walker, Walker Logistics’ marketing director: “With nearly 50 very different clients being served from our main hub near Reading we handle products that range from garden furniture to cosmetics and provide a full range of B-2-C online fulfilment and B-2-B stock replenishment services."
And he adds: “In line with the huge growth in online shopping across the board, some of our customers have experienced a 400% uplift in orders since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. In a typical day we are currently processing some tens of thousands of online orders - which can be anything from an ecommerce basket of two to three items through to a subscription style order containing hundreds of items. And we fill multiple stand trailers per day for shipment to our clients’ retail customers.” (mw)
