Matchesfashion.com to open a new distribution center in London

Matchesfashion.com has announced plans to open a new distribution center near Heathrow Airport, in London, reports WWD. It adds that the new center to be opened in 2018, will let the company manage more number of shipments.

The proposed site has the capacity to expand over 500,000 sq. ft. space, which will ultimately enable Matchesfashion.com to achieve its target of handling around four million shipments a year by 2020, says WWD. Since the site of the distribution center is close to the Heathrow Airport, the company would also be able to make quick deliveries to its customers based in international locations, while offering its 90-minute delivery system in London. The report further states that as of now, the company ships to 176 countries, and has ambitious targets of expanding its global presence.

Apart from plans of opening the new distribution center, the reports states, the company is investing in expanding its office spaces. For instance, its office headquarters at the Shard were increased by 40 percent, to 48,000 sq. ft. and at the beginning of this year, Matchesfashion.com opened a new hub in East London to accommodate editorial, photography and video teams.
