GEODIS, a leading global supply chain operator, opens its new logistics campus in Douvrin, Hauts de France. A team of 300 GEODIS employees will be mobilized to primarily serve retail and textile customers, in this new 48,000 sqm site.

At this new multi-user installation, GEODIS provides its partners with comprehensive solutions and services for the reception and storage of goods, order preparation and flow management.

The site is located near the relevant regional distribution hubs and is equipped with new state-of-the art technology such as corrugators, pick-to-light equipment, automated conveyors, and others. More than €3 M has been invested in equipping this campus which is classified as lower-tier according to the EU’s Seveso Directive, allowing GEODIS to manage seasonality and specificities of regulated products.
