CitySprint has opened a new Service Centre in Birmingham that is four times bigger than its previous location in the city.
The new site boasts 14,000sq ft of warehousing space and is enabled with CitySprint’s warehouse management software.
The relocation also means that the business is now located closer to major Birmingham hospitals and healthcare facilities, a major customer for its CitySprint Health arm.
It will enable CitySprint to support the growing demand for healthcare logistics and supply chain needs across the Midlands.
Mark Philipson, CitySprint’s regional manager for the Midlands, said: “For over 10 years we have been working in the Birmingham area — always looking to provide the best possible delivery experience to our customers from start to finish. Our new warehouse location, combined with our local knowledge, experience and expertise, will help us deliver a fast, flexible and convenient service to our clients in the Midlands which, in turn, will enable them to better meet the needs of their customers. It will also mean we’re in the best position possible to help our traditional customer base as they unwind from lockdown and requirements increase from manufacturers shipping parts and priority documents for city centre professional services companies.”
The wide range of vehicles – including small and large vans, transits and lutons – available at the Birmingham location also means CitySprint is in a prime position to support local businesses, no matter their needs. Not only this; understanding the importance of low-emissions vehicles, CitySprint’s fleet also includes an electric van, which has travelled 4,907 green miles since December 2020, while completing work across almost all sectors.
The new site has been fitted with e-charging facilities to support the growing demand for zero-emission delivery solutions as the region moves closer to the launch of the Birmingham Clean Air Zone in June 2021.
