Eddie Stobart Logistics has had its plans for a new national distribution centre approved by Warrington Borough Council.

The vast 634,910 sq. ft. facility will be built on Barleycastle Lane adjacent to the company’s existing campus, which includes the Eddie Stobart Group head office, training academy and central operations.

Costing £75 million, the development should be completed by the end of 2020.

Alex Laffey, CEO of Eddie Stobart, said, “The National Distribution Centre will deliver real investment and create 480 new jobs and training opportunities for Warrington. Our plans will also see over £6 million invested in the local road network for the benefit of all road users.”
