More than 200 jobs under threat at Iceland distribution centre

More than 200 jobs at a warehouse distribution centre for supermarket chain Iceland in North Wales are under threat.

The hub, located in Deeside and close to Iceland’s HQ, is run for the retailer by logistics giant GXO.

The company have informed 240 staff that their jobs are at risk after investments by Iceland to increase capacity of its Swindon sites and Livingston retail distribution centres (RDC), and to create a new RDC in Warrington.

The site will stop being used for Iceland goods and become a “third-party storage facility” according to GXO.

A GXO spokesman said: “Following a strategic review of the Iceland distribution network, GXO is proposing repurposing the Deeside depot as a third-party storage facility, effective as of April 1st.

“The decision follows significant investments by Iceland over the past three years to increase the capacity of its Swindon sites and Livingston retail distribution centres (RDC), and to create the new RDC in Warrington, which are expected to help the company meet all of its current and projected operational needs.

“GXO will initiate consultations with the Deeside depot employees with the process taking a minimum of 45 days. GXO will take every step to minimise the impact of this change on its employees, offering redeployment to the wider GXO and Iceland distribution networks, as well as support with finding external opportunities.”
