M&S open e-commerce store

June 10, 2013

Marks & Spencer has officially opened its new 900,000 sq ft distribution centre in Castle Donington. The facility will be used both as an e-commerce distribution centre and a national distribution centre.

The first customer orders started moving through the new facility in May  and, when fully operational, up to a million items a day will be processed.

The site is fully automated and, at 900,000 sq ft and 25 metres high, is one the biggest centres of its kind in the UK.
