GEFCO opens 6.4 million euro facility in MerseysideGlobal automotive logistics specialist GEFCO UK, has expanded its footprint in Liverpool with the opening of a new, ‘state of the art’, 176,000ft2 logistics sequencing centre in Speke.

The facility comes as part of a 6.4 million euro investment by GEFCO and its client Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and is set to create around 140 jobs for the Merseyside area.

The centre was officially opened during an inauguration ceremony which took place last week followed by an event celebrating 40 years of GEFCO operations in the UK, attended by senior management from across the GEFCO Group.

Cedric Chacon, GEFCO UK managing director, said: “This is another major milestone in both the growth of our automotive sequencing capabilities and in our relationship with our valued partners at JLR. The project represents a significant investment by GEFCO and its partners into what is a strategically important location for us, and indeed for the UK automotive sector.

“We are excited to be able to grow our presence in Merseyside as well as support the local economy, strengthen manufacturing capabilities in the region and deliver major job opportunities for local communities.

“Over 40 years, GEFCO UK has developed a proven track record of impactful strategic investment and innovation in automotive logistics. This latest project is testament to that and our relentless approach to ensuring our client offering is as strong as it possibly can be.”

The facility will be responsible for receiving and processing 400 different commodities from JLR’s global supply chain. From the centre, parts will be decanted, repacked, quality checked, and distributed to JLR’s manufacturing hubs.

Currently, GEFCO already operates two sites in and around Merseyside. The new facility will be operated by GEFCO as part of a lease running to 2028.

The new facility represents an integral part of GEFCO’s integrated logistics offering, which incorporates flows management, multimodal solutions, logistics engineering and fiscal and customs procedures management.
