Geodis opens new logistics campus in France

Geodis, a leading global supply chain operator, has opened its new logistics campus in Douvrin, Hauts de France.

A team of 300 Geodis employees will be mobilised to primarily serve retail and textile customers, in this new 48,000 sq m site, said a statement.

At this new multi-user installation, Geodis provides its partners with comprehensive solutions and services for the reception and storage of goods, order preparation and flow management.

Quality control services based on customer needs, such as the quality control of supplier components or customisation and gift packaging for e-commerce customers are also offered.

Frédéric Pasqual, Geodis executive vice president, Contract Logistics France, said: “This new campus is part of the modernisation of our warehousing infrastructure.”

“It strengthens our position in Northern France and reinforces our position as a leading logistics provider of choice for retail and e-commerce activities,” Pasqual added.

The site is located near the relevant regional distribution hubs and is equipped with new state-of-the art technology such as corrugators, pick-to-light equipment, automated conveyors, and others.

More than €3 million ($3.39 million) has been invested in equipping this campus which is classified as lower-tier according to the EU’s Seveso Directive, allowing Geodis to manage seasonality and specificities of regulated products. More than three million e-commerce orders will be handled yearly. – TradeArabia News Service
