On 30th April 2012, one of our courier partners City Link announced they’ve opened a new depot in Chelmsford.
This new state of the art depot replaces the existing Chelmsford North and Chelmsford South depots and will provide City Link with a platform to expand their courier operations.
Tim Brown, who is the Sales and Marketing Director for the courier company, highlighted this. He said: “City Link is once again a company on the ascendancy and the opening of the new Depot at Chelmsford is part of our plans to expand to become a £500 million company in the next five years.”
The new depot covers a huge 72000 square foot, which is 50% larger than the size of the two existing Chelmsford depots combined.
The depot will enhance City Link’s capability to handle parcels. In addition, the new depot has room for dedicated parking for trunking vehicles as well as space for collection and delivery loading.
The depot manager Paul Dillon said: “The new Chelmsford Depot will enable City Link to offer even greater levels of service to our customers. We are delighted with the new facilities and the employees have worked extremely hard to ensure the transition was as smooth as possible. These are exciting times for City Link. The Chelmsford region has a huge amount of untapped potential and I am looking forward to further growing our business in the region.”
We wish City Link and the Chelmsford depot staff all the best with the new site.
