Online electrical retailer AO has secured a new 20,000ft2 delivery depot in Lanarkshire, Scotland.
The move to the facility on Strutherhill Industrial Estate, which is much larger than its previous depot at Canderside Toll Distribution Centre, follows the structural shift in shopping habits with more customers buying their appliances online.
Over the last two years, the retailer has increased its warehousing capacity by over 80%, rapidly growing its distribution network and creating over 1,000 logistics jobs across the business.
The new site has created eight new opportunities for people across South Lanarkshire, and there will be several positions available in the delivery driver crews. The network of depots is supplied by AO’s main distribution centres in Crewe, Stafford and Stoke and the nationwide delivery coverage ensures that AO is never more than one hour away from customers.
