Global automotive logistics specialist GEFCO UK, has expanded its footprint in Liverpool with the opening of a new, state-of-the-art, 176,000ft² logistics sequencing centre in Speke.

 

The facility comes as part of a €6.4million investment by GEFCO and their client Jaguar Land Rover and marks a new chapter in GEFCO’s relationship with the automotive giant.

 

The new centre is set to create around 140 jobs for Merseyside and reaffirms GEFCO’s commitment to driving forward investment and manufacturing in the region.

 

Cedric Chacon, Managing Director at GEFCO UK, commented: “The project represents a significant investment by GEFCO and its partners into what is a strategically important location for us, and indeed for the UK automotive sector. 

 

“We are excited to be able to grow our presence in Merseyside as well as support the local economy, strengthen manufacturing capabilities in the region and deliver major job opportunities for local communities.”

 

The facility will be responsible for receiving and processing 400 different commodities from JLR’s global supply chain. From the centre, parts will be decanted, repacked, quality checked, and distributed to JLR’s manufacturing hubs.
