Tigers roars into Thurrock as it stalks e-commerce demand

Tigers' Thurrock facility

Logistics firm Tigers has opened a new facility in Thurrock, near London Gateway, to continue with long-term UK investment plans and to meet growing e-commerce demand.

 

Tigers has moved its existing Basildon facility to the larger location in Thurrock with the creation of more than 50 jobs, which will establish Thurrock as another flagship location for Tigers in Europe.

 

“Tigers is committed to investment in the UK, and the opening of the new Thurrock facility is perfectly timed as we welcome new clients on board for both B2B and B2C global e-fulfilment,” said Shahar Ayash, managing director UK and Europe, Tigers.

 

“This is a multi-million-pound investment by Tigers in the UK, despite Brexit, and not only will it create new jobs, it will also secure our future as a leader in the logistics and supply chain industry as e-commerce demand continues to grow.”

 

The new facility is conveniently located off the M25 with proximity to the Port of Felixstowe, central London, and all main road routes to the Midlands, Wales, northern England, and Scotland.

 

“We have always viewed the UK as an important market and remain committed to investing in the expansion of our e-commerce and fulfilment operations,” said Andrew Jillings, chief executive, Tigers.

 

“The Thurrock facility significantly expands our UK presence and provides us with a strategically located hub to cater for increased customer demand.”

 

The Thurrock facility will use Tigers’ logistics platforms, providing B2B and B2C fulfilment, UK and international distribution, and warehousing solutions.

 

The opening of the new Thurrock location follows the recent expansion of the Tigers facility in Miami, Florida, to meet growing e-commerce demand, the launch of Cloud-based platform SmartHub:Connect (SH:C), and becoming the launch customer for new instant freight rate quote engine, Doozee.
