Unipart Logistics has signed a five-year contract to support Jaguar Land Rover’s US expansion in the North East of the country, from a new facility in Mickleton, New Jersey.

Mickleton, a 280,000 square feet aftermarket site, is the first US dual-brand site for JLR, servicing 90 retailers and the Port of Baltimore.

Unipart will employ 100 people to support inbound, outbound, reverse logistics, transport management, facility management for parts and branded goods out of the new site.

Unipart Logistics’ existing services for JLR in North America include running other warehouses across the country, technical first line support, customer service, branded goods, special service orders and retailer inventory management.

“We are proud of our deep-rooted partnership with Jaguar Land Rover,” said Unipart CCO, Claire Walters.

“This, allied to our expertise in supply chain transformation, continuous improvement and digital innovation, has ensured we are well placed to develop Mickleton into a flagship dual-brand facility to enhance Jaguar Land Rover’s continued growth in North America.”
