Fulfillment firm Carlton Forest 3PL has added a further 100,000 sq ft site to its #portfolio, its fourth building acquisition in just eight months.

The warehouse, at Tuxford, Nottinghamshire, close to the A1, is facilitating stock storage, management, and fulfilment for two significant, but unnamed, retailers.

“We continue to seek opportunities to grow our customer base and the reputation that we have secured for our high levels of customer service are paying dividends as businesses seek partnership agreements with us,” said Adam Jones, managing firector, Carlton Forest 3PL.

He added: “This latest acquisition highlights our ability to create tailor made solutions in strategic locations that suit our customer requirements and allows us to integrate the site into our business operations with ease.”

The site is now fully operational with 10 jobs being created after the previous company operating from the building went into adminstration.

Jones said: “This latest acquisition joins our sites at Worksop, Hellaby and Bawtry Park and gives us great flexibility in offering support to business who are either based in the region or who are seeking a distribution hub in the area. 2022 already looks exciting for us with further expansion planned and warehouse acquisitions already in the pipeline.”
