GEODIS invests €3m in a new logistics facility in Northern France


GEODIS has opened a new 48,000 sq m logistics facility in Douvrin, Hauts de France, Northern France. The site is located near regional distribution hubs and is equipped with new technology including corrugators, pick-to-light equipment and automated conveyors.

GEODIS has invested more than €3m in this campus which will allow it to manage seasonality and specificities of regulated products. About 300 employees will primarily serve retail and textile customers, providing solutions and services for the reception and storage of goods, order preparation and flow management. GEODIS will also offer quality control services based on customer needs, such as the quality control of supplier components or customisation and gift packaging for e-commerce customers. The company expects to handle more than three million e-commerce orders yearly.

“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,” says Frédéric Pasqual, GEODIS Executive Vice President, Contract Logistics France.
