A new online portal for UK retail and ecommerce customers looking for available warehouse space has launched. LogistCompare enables customers to enter their preferred location and space requirements and then receive a selection of warehouses and costs for them to evaluate and follow up directly with the warehouse through the portal. The service is free for retailers looking for warehouse space.

Serafina Valente, managing director of LogistCompare, said the new portal would particularly suit the peak season needs of retailers. “Retailers look for warehousing space often with short notice to cover seasonal demands and finding the right space at the right price can be challenging,” she said.

“Forward planning requires knowing where to find extra available warehouse space is critically important for them. Our portal is a free service offering retailers a platform to reach out to warehousing providers. This on-demand service means warehouses now can advertise their free space in real time and interact directly with potential clients. With no third-party to slow the process down, there is the ability to speedily fulfil retail demand and access warehouse availability.”

The company claims that its service allows warehouses a real-time ability to compare offerings and make decisions in hours instead of days. “This is a service offering live space availability giving both parties interactive communications showing options and costs that can be sourced on-line. Warehouses can now advertise their space and talk directly with retailers looking for last minute or increased seasonal inventory space,” she said.
