Multi-carrier delivery company, Parcelhub, has opened a 10,000ft2 depot at Meridian Business Park, just off Junction 21 of the M1 motorway in Leicestershire.
The new depot will support Parcelhub’s expansion of a single daily parcel collection service for SME and mid-market retailers, wholesalers and brands throughout Leicestershire, Rutland and the north of Northamptonshire.
Parcelhub has experienced high organic growth in recent years and has also benefited from the growth in e-commerce following the pandemic lockdowns.
Currently, Parcelhub’s Nottingham depot collects and redistributes up to 20,000 tracked parcels per week from Leicester. The new 10,000ft2 Leicester depot enables extra capacity and better collection performance for its existing East Midlands-based clients.
“For the past 10 years, our 11,000ft2 parcel collection and redistribution unit in Nottingham has grown rapidly and has reached capacity with up to 50,000 tracked parcels a week,” commented Steve Marjoram, Managing Director, Parcelhub.
