Southgate Launches 3PL Exchange

3PL Exchange is a new online search facility launched by Southgate Global in partnership with Shoothill. It has been designed to help UK operators searching for warehouse space.

The database, created by Southgate Global, is free for anyone to access online and is a response to the recent demand for warehouse space and struggles businesses and brands are experiencing when searching for warehouse storage space.

Stockpiling due to Brexit and the pandemic has added extra pressure on the warehousing industry and the need for extra space is only set to increase with the rise of e-commerce sales growing by 50% since the start of the pandemic.

Southgate launched 3PL Exchange with aims to streamline the process for both business owners and logistics companies by offering a quick and simple database which outlines details such as how much space is available and where the warehouse is based.  Anyone can access the database online and modify their search with terms such as minimum and maximum space required and warehouse type.  Those with warehouse space available can also use the platform to create a listing.

Darren Smith, Head of Marketing at Southgate said: “Finding warehouse space has become increasingly challenging over the past year, something we have experienced first-hand at Southgate which is why we decided to create a solution.  We are excited to be launching 3PL Exchange, especially during a time when warehouse demand is at its peak. We hope that our database allows others to access the information they need with ease and reduce the headache of manually searching for availability”.

Rod Plummer, Managing Director at Shoothill commented: “3PL Exchange was built to bring suppliers and buyers of storage space together without difficulty. We have built an interactive map of the whole UK into the platform, essentially giving this tool limitless potential for logistic companies from all over the country. We are excited to see how this platform will be utilised in the coming months as we believe it could really help streamline an industry currently suffering from inefficiency, delays and high costs thanks to a turbulent economic climate”.
