Pro FS Upscale 3PL Operations with State-of-the-Art Warehouse

Professional Fulfilment Services Ltd (Pro FS) have recently become the proud occupiers of a 117,000 sq. ft. warehouse facility in Milton Keynes, in the heart of a golden logistics triangle. 

Moving from their previous premises in Bedford, their new state-of-the-art facility at G-Park, overlooking Willen Lake offers over 5,000,000 cubic feet of usable space, fully utilising the 45ft eves height for storage capacity and the latest is automation technology. 

The building is equipped with impressive sustainability credentials including a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and is both WELL-ready and Planet Mark certified. From low energy LED lighting and solar panels to EV charging points and bicycle stores, the warehouse offers a positive sustainable footprint for their rapidly growing fulfilment operations alongside an inspiring environment-focused facility, with the emphasis firmly on enhancing the well-being and productivity of its valued staff.

Their third-party logistics operations are 100% powered by zero carbon electricity supply, backed by electricity from renewable energy sources. Streamlined operations utilise recycled fittings and eco (plastic-free/reduced) packaging is company-sourced ensuring 100% of any waste produced is recycled. Solar energy generation is in place as well as rainwater harvesting for non-potable usage, and the whole building is monitored by environment analytics to ensure its high sustainability credentials are maintained.

Pro FS are extending their commitment to sustainability across their fulfilment operations, with significant investment in warehouse automation. The deployment of Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) will not only support their drive for greener logistics but will also dramatically enhance operational efficiency for their growing customer base. 

Chris Vautier, CEO commented, “We have made a considerable investment in our new facility both to enhance our sustainability credibility as well as provide an operationally-sound platform for continued growth. Bringing AMRs to daily product fulfilment is a game-changer; highly efficient and with low running costs, our new fleet of robots offer exceptional levels of pick efficiency in a high-density environment, leaving space for future expansion as we continue to take on new clients with diverse fulfilment needs.

“Equally important has been the design and installation of our offices and staff breakout areas. Pro FS are proud to be a family-run business, and we know our success is built on the passion and drive from everyone here, and we wanted to provide a warm, safe and welcoming environment for all our staff to enjoy. From pool tables to quiet reading areas, the modern, stylish interior was designed to inspire, empower and support our staff to enable them to be at their very best, both physically and mentally.”
