Aldi opens £50m Distribution Centre


Aldi (subscribers to the FSDF’s Climate Change Agreement) has opened a £50 million 60,000 sq m site distribution centre in Sheppey, Kent to serve nearly 60 stores and create 400 new jobs.

“The new Sheppey distribution centre significantly increases our capacity and allows us to open more stores across the South East to cater for the growing number of shoppers switching to Aldi,” said Isle of Sheppey Regional Distribution Centre managing director Ben Shotter.

“Although some of our newest and most popular stores are situated in the South East, there are still many towns and cities where we have a limited presence or none at all. This is something that we are looking to address in the coming years.”
