Yodel reveals plans for new Northern super-hub

Yodel has announced plans for a long-term strategic investment in a new Northern super-hub to support the company’s growth.

The investment, which aims to protect all existing jobs while also creating new job opportunities for the wider region, will see a five-year transition from its existing warehouse hub in Shaw, near Oldham.

The upgrade is in response to growing parcel volumes, triggered by a series of new client wins and the dramatic increase in consumer demand for online retail during the months since the COVID-19 pandemic took hold.

Chief executive Mike Hancox commented: “This represents an important upgrade to our current operations – creating more opportunities across the regions, whilst cementing Yodel’s position as the leading independent parcel carrier in the UK.

“We are working alongside USDAW, our recognised trade union, and will listen carefully as we look to identify a new site location," he continued, adding: "We’ll also work closely with local authorities and community leaders to make sure this process is carried out as fairly and sensitively as possible for our colleagues."
