Tigers has opened a new facility in Thurrock, near London Gateway, to continue with its long-term UK investment plans and to meet growing e-commerce demand, despite ongoing uncertainty surrounding Brexit.

The larger location in Thurrock should see the creation of more than 50 jobs, which will establish Thurrock as another flagship location for Tigers within Europe.

“Tigers is committed to investment in the UK, and the opening of the new Thurrock facility is perfectly timed as we welcome new clients on board for both B2B and B2C global e-fulfilment,” explained Shahar Ayash, Managing Director UK and Europe, Tigers.

“This is a multi-million pound investment by Tigers in the UK, despite Brexit, and not only will it create new jobs, it will also secure our future as a leader in the logistics and supply chain industry, as e-commerce demand continues to grow.”

The new facility is conveniently located off the M25, with proximity to the Port of Felixstowe, central London, and all main road routes to the Midlands, Wales, northern England and Scotland.

“We have always viewed the UK as an important market and remain committed to investing in the expansion of our e-commerce and fulfilment operations,” said Andrew Jillings, CEO, Tigers.

“The Thurrock facility significantly expands our UK presence and provides us with a strategically located hub to cater for increased customer demand.”

The Thurrock facility will be powered by Tigers’ advanced logistics platforms, providing B2B and B2C fulfilment; UK and international distribution; and warehousing solutions.
