Ocado adds new Oxford base

Online retailer Ocado is to open a new regional depot near Oxford to tackle capacity problems at the online grocer. Due to open in November this year, the 43,000 sq ft warehouse will be able to process 10,000 orders a week. The new site will take pressure off existing sites in Weybridge and Coventry, as well as the central depot in Hatfield. “We are fully focussed on increasing our capacity to meet customer demand,” it said.
