Transport and logistics company Excel has landed a multi million pound, five year deal to create a central warehouse facility for upscale retailer Selfridges.

According to a report in the Financial Times, the contract will see a new 160,000 sq ft Selfridges distribution facility being constructed in the West Midlands with the creation of 200 new jobs.

The new facility will replace Selfridges' current unit in Paddington, London and is expected to be fully operational early next year.

Excel's deal with Selfridges will include the delivery of change management, warehousing and distribution services.
