New Ocado Warehouse Could Create 2,000 Jobs In Salford

Up to 2,000 full or part time Salford jobs could be created if the north west town were to host a new Ocado warehouse. According to the local press, the full depot in Salford could be home to 3,000 jobs if the deal goes goes ahead and other businesses move into the facility.

Ocado, the online groceries business, already has two major distribution facilities (or customer fulfilment centres as they call them) at Hatfield in Hertfordshire and Dordon in North Warwickshire. They are now looking to add a third customer fulfilment centre after closing a £200 million deal to make online deliveries for Morrisons supermarket in 2013.

Salford is looking like one of the favourites to clinch the new Ocado warehouse, but the town still faces competition from other North West towns, along with locations in neighbouring Yorkshire and Kent.

Announcing the latest details of the Ocado customer fulfilment centre story and the hundred of potential jobs in Salford that would be created, local newspaper Manchester Evening News reported:

“[Developer] Peel Holdings estimates the whole development could create 3,000 Salford jobs, assuming the warehousing space will be used by a mix of occupiers. Construction of the first phase of the scheme is due to start this year with a new terminal, access roads, rail connection, and wharf with warehousing.”
