In yet another strand of their ongoing growth programme, global leader in online vehicle remarketing and recycling, Copart UK, have announced a new Operation Centre in Chelmsford, Essex.

This new 30-acre site will provide additional capacity in Copart’s strategic network in the southeast region of the UK, alongside their existing Operation Centres in Colchester, Rochford, Sandwich, Sandy, and Wisbech.

Continued expansion across the UK is part of the company’s ambitious growth programme to meet continued demand from their customers, including most of the UK’s major insurance and automotive companies.

This new site in Chelmsford, situated in close proximity to London, will enable Copart to increase vehicle storage capacity in this region by 25%, reducing road miles and increasing their online auctions. 

Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK and Ireland, said:

“We’re very excited to announce our plans to develop a new Operation Centre in Chelmsford, which will provide annual storage capacity for 35,000 vehicles.

“The Essex area is growing rapidly with increasing levels of housing development, so Copart Chelmsford will be a key location for us to handle future demand and further strengthen our unrivalled operational capabilities in the southeast.”

Copart have said there will be more announcements to come for their customers as they continue to acquire more land, expand existing sites, and increase their range of industry leading products and services.
