Unipart Logistics has won the contract to run a new global parts distribution centre being built for Jaguar Land Rover.
The logistics provider has secured a five year deal to operate the vast new site being built at Appleby Magna in west Leicestershire.
The 3 million sq ft complex is being built by IM Properties next to Junction 11 of the M42, and will open in 2022.
It will be JLR’s global hub for sending spare parts to customers in the UK and 80 countries around the world.
The car maker wants to centralise the work currently done at 19 warehouses dotted around the Midlands.
The whole site will require 1,200 positions from day one with 3,000 jobs forecast to be based there by 2030.
