WMB Logistics expands its storage ahead of Brexit

Gloucester, UK: WMB Logistics has secured a second warehouse within Gloucestershire ahead of Brexit.

The new 3,159 square metre warehouse will be used for both palletised goods storage (largely food and drink) and motorcycles. A senior spokesman for WMB Logistics said: “Our continued growth in all divisions of the company has led to us increasing our storage capacity to meet demand.”

“We have a number of blue chip clients who are building stock reserves in preparation for Brexit but who also require additional space post-Brexit, irrelevant of the type of Brexit we encounter. Due to the nature of our relationship with these clients we have signed a number of deals that meet these needs.”

WMB Group is made up of WMB Logistics, WMB Palletised, WMB Chilled and WMB Events.
