Logistics firm celebrates growth in e-commerce business

YORKSHIRE based Eldred Group are celebrating growth thanks to expanding into e-commerce thanks to a partnership with Blue Box.

The partnership means that Eldred Group will produce bespoke warehousing facilities and storage solutions for manufacturers across the globe.

Martin Eldred, managing director of Eldred Group, a Logistics Hub UK member, said: “This new collaboration with Blue Box has meant that we’ve invested heavily in a new complex IT infrastructure to compensate for online orders to warehouse management. This will enable us to offer worldwide solutions for businesses.

“We believe that this investment will really pay off as online purchasing is a huge growth area. This is the future and we need to be ready for it.

“More and more people are making purchases online and thanks to our e-commerce system we can work with the suppliers to deliver these goods and grow our overall business.

“The value of sterling has meant that we have seen a 25 percent increase in our exports to Europe and we are continuing to grow in this area.”

The Eldred Group, who already have three sites covering 350000 sq. ft. over the Yorkshire region, recently announced an investment in a new 40,000 sq. ft space for 7000 pallets in Hexthrope.

The Eldred Group has its roots firmly placed in Doncaster, close to road, rail, water and air with the A1 and M18 motorways giving access to major routes and locations in the UK and the port of Hull, Doncaster Sheffield Airport and the Doncaster international rail port on the doorstep.

“Our e-commerce solutions, where we produce bespoke warehousing facilities and storage solutions for manufacturers, importers and exporters across the world are a great addition to our diverse offering,” added Martin.

Logistics Hub UK (LHUK) is a membership group committed to the development of the Sheffield City Region as one of the UK’s leading logistics, warehousing and distribution sites.

Amy Symon, project manager for LHUK said: “We are really pleased to see such an innovative approach to business growth from one of our members.

“Eldred have responded to changes in what people are buying and have invested in their business and developed a partnership to help them to meet demand.”
