Parcelnet, the home delivery company, has opened a depot at Brooklands Industrial Estate in Weybridge to handle added volumes in London and the southern Home Counties.
The 38,000 sq ft site replaces a smaller depot in Mitcham that no longer met operational needs and will enable Parcelnet to increase throughput by 40 per cent.
The warehouse has two dock levellers and has been fitted with a carousel conveyer system to enhance efficiency and streamline the parcel sortation process. The site will house a 24-hour, six-day operation that will receive and dispatch around 120,000 consignments a week to couriers located in south and east London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Where appropriate, the facility will also handle stock collections for key clients.
