Warehousing in Birmingham – ‘space is always opening up’

Last year was one of the busiest for warehousing services we’ve seen since we founded International Forwarding (IFL) in 1989. With ongoing high demand for logistics space from businesses, there has been a continual ebb and flow at our three Birmingham warehouses.

With storage space constantly coming free, it is always worth getting in touch for a storage quote. We are members of the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA). All our warehouses are fully alarmed with CCTV monitoring for added security. And we are close to the UK motorway network and Birmingham International Airport.

Will warehousing demand ease in 2022?

As we wrote last year, the high demand for warehousing continued throughout 2021. We expect that to remain the case this year and beyond. This is due to a combination of supply chain disruptions and stock-holding from Brexit and Covid-19 complexities, plus rising demand for goods from economies re-opening, changing consumer demands and the shift towards online retail and e-commerce.

Warehousing, storage and distribution have become an even more critical part of the UK economy’s infrastructure.

Andy Grubb, IFL Sales Director, says: “Many of our customers are Midlands-based manufacturers and businesses that import from or export to the EU, Europe and wider global markets. They rely on us for safe, secure, pallet storage with bulk storage and flexible 3PL solutions.

“Our warehouses are very busy but space is opening up all the time – that’s the nature of logistics. Get in touch with our experienced team [details below] and we’ll do our utmost to find the right transport and/or storage solution to suit your needs.”
