ABSTRACT
This article reports that the freight forwarding and ferry services group, Cenargo, is planning to develop a strong position in the growing electronic commerce logistics market. The group intends to invest, over the next year or so, up to 20 million pounds in a new electronic commerce distribution facility and associated call center to be located at its 114-acre site near Darlington, England. The Cenargo e-Logistics Ltd., the recently formed dedicated subsidiary of the group to provide logistic services to Internet trading companies, will operate the new pick-and-pack warehouse center. This is being developed in association with the Takenaka company, the British subsidiary of a Japanese group which provides design and turnkey management services on such projects.
