10 October 2019/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Freight Forwarding, Logistics & Supply Chain


Lidl GB has announced that operations have started at its new £70m Scottish distribution centre in Eurocentral.

The new 58,500m2 warehouse, Lidl’s largest in Great Britain, is a base for 600 existing Lidl employees, who have relocated from the retailer’s existing distribution centre in Livingston. 

The site at Eurocentral will support Lidl’s growing store estate across Scotland, set to reach the milestone of 100 locations in the new year. A further 12 new stores are planned over the next three years in locations including Dundee, East Kilbride, Cowdenbeath, Larkhall and Dumbarton.

Lidl GB Regional Director for Scotland, Ross Millar commented, “We’re very excited to be celebrating the opening of our new Eurocentral distribution centre, which represents a pivotal moment in our ambitious growth plans across Scotland.”

“The warehouse underlines our commitment to creating more jobs for Scotland and I’d like to extend my thanks to both store and warehouse colleagues, who’ve worked so hard to get us to where we are today.” 

The discounter also plans to open a further four warehouses by 2025 in Bolton, Peterborough, Luton and Leeds.

Lidl has experienced continued growth in Scotland over the years, currently sourcing over 300 products from 60 Scottish suppliers and plans to open its 100th Scottish store in early 2020.
