The Amazon service specialist will benefit from increased efficiencies as Xpediator continues to integrate its UK logistics operations
Freight management services provider Xpediator is moving its Regional Express subsidiary into its sister company’s new 200,000 sq ft distribution centre at Southampton container port.
 
The Delamode International Logistics site, completed earlier this year, will increase Regional Express’ pallet space capacity, while providing increased efficiencies in stock intake, order processing and speed to market, direct to the point of demand.
 
Regional Express is a one-stop service for Amazon sellers in the UK, US and Europe with services including VAT registrations and tax filling, customs clearance, returns, fulfilment and warehousing.
 
The move to the new warehouse is part of the overall integration of Xpediator’s UK logistics operations.
 
Regional Express will be able to offer bonded and buffer storage for Amazon sellers, enabling them to send larger quantities in one shipment to the UK reducing the overall unit cost. Smaller shipments, in line with the unit limits set by Amazon, can then be sent to Amazon warehouses in the UK and the remaining stock held at the new warehouse for stock replenishment as required.
 
Robert Ross, CEO, Xpediator, said:

“As an approved supplier to the Amazon Solution Provider Network (SPN), Regional Express is well positioned to fulfil all logistical requirements for Amazon sellers. Regional Express performed strongly in 2020, and the move into the new Southampton warehouse will enhance its capabilities for Amazon sellers as well as become a point of differentiation for attracting new clients.”
 
Neil Curran, Managing Director of Regional Express, added:

“Moving to the new Southampton warehouse has multiple advantages for our business not only in terms of additional capacity and layout but also in terms of being located within the port itself, as this will lead to much faster stock intake and order processing times which will culminate into faster delivery times for our customers.”
 
Completed earlier this year, the new warehouse is designed to BREEAM Excellent Sustainability Standards and is primarily powered by renewable energy via a £2.5m roof mounted solar panel installation, believed to be one of the largest in the UK
