Flexible solution for Hermes Parcelnet following fire at new facility
20 Jul 17
Logicor was able to work quickly with Hermes Parcelnet and existing customer elsewhere, to provide a temporary solution within 48 hours of a fire at a separate site minimizing the impact on Hermes Parcelnet’s customers and strengthening our relationship with them.
Onyx350 is located on Manor Park, Runcorn in one of the best distribution locations in the North West in close proximity to both the M56 and M6. The unit was acquired vacant by Logicor. Hermes Parcelnet had a fire at one of their existing sites and urgently required additional space during their peak pre-Christmas trading period.
As an existing Landlord of Hermes Parcelnet at a separate facility, Hermes approached Logicor about identifying alternative temporary space to ensure there was no impact on their customers during a key trading period. Logicor was able to provide Hermes Parcelnet with a short term, flexible solution at Onyx350, Runcorn within 48 hours.
Hermes Parcelnet began operating from Onyx350, Runcorn within 48 hours of the fire at their existing facility minimising the impact to their customers. Logicor was proud to be able to provide a solution to one of our customers in such a short time frame and have strengthened our relationship with Hermes Parcelnet.
“Due to a fire at one of our sites, we had an urgent requirement to expand into new logistics warehouse space in the North West of the UK. As a long-standing supplier of choice, we approached Logicor and asked their support to identify potential sites, with a view to implementing at speed. The response from Charlie Howard and the Logicor UK team really exceeded our expectations. They delivered an appropriate, cost-effective solution – we first discussed their site with Charlie at 7pm on the Wednesday, viewed the building at 9am on Thursday, then completed legal documents and moved into the building with furniture and conveyors by midday on Friday! Less than a 48 hour turnaround into 80,000 sq ft of space. This support from Logicor was very impressive. I am grateful the Logicor team understood what was required and then went the extra mile to ensure our business was not disrupted at a crucial time of the year"
