ArrowXL moves operations after hub destroyed

ArrowXL is moving its operations after a major fire destroyed its Worcester hub last week. The company expects its warehousing operation to be up and running by Wednesday, when it moves into a site in Chepstow.

The two-man delivery company that it plans to “explore options to rebuild its Worcester site over the next two years.” The business said that its warehousing staff will be “transported by the company to and from Chepstow, whilst its delivery operation will still be based at Worcester.”

According to the company, between 150 and 200 staff are based at the Worcester hub at any one time.

“A huge amount of praise and thanks goes to our dedicated workforce for their amazing support and patience at this challenging time,” said Charlie Shiels, chief operating officer at ArrowXL. “Together, we are looking to the future in Worcester and everyone is fully determined to get back to ‘business as usual’ as soon as possible. “Equally, we’d like to take this opportunity to say a very special thank you to the emergency services for such as fantastic job over the last few days, and to our clients and their customers for their support and understanding, which is greatly appreciated.”
