Coventry’s central location within the country makes it the ideal city for warehouses and distribution centres.
Never has these been more apparent than in recent years, with more and more large businesses choosing Coventry as their distribution hub.
Easy access to motorway and rail networks make the city the perfect location for an ever increasing number of businesses.
The city has benefitted from the recent boom in online retail, with offers of next day delivery from many online businesses making a central location imperative in order to fulfil these promises.
With its new distribution centre expected to open later this year, the online giant Amazon is a great example of one of the many businesses taking advantage of the infrastructure and access the city of Coventry has to offer.
The online retailer has pledged to recruit more than 1,650 permanent jobs at their new site, providing a massive employment boost for the city.The new distribution centre is expected to be the size of eight football pitches, and will be situation on what was formerly the Jaguar Browns Lane factory.
