Copart continues expansion in Cambridgeshire

Copart UK has secured final planning permission to expand its site in Wisbech, adding 50% to vehicle storage capabilities in Cambridgeshire.

This expansion is part of Copart’s extensive reinvestment strategy to meet continued demand from customers, which includes a programme of land acquisition alongside continuous improvement at existing sites and reinvestment in transport, services, and technology.

The news follows a series of similar growth and investment announcements from Copart over the past year, including continued expansion at their Super Centre in Bristol, a new 31-acre site in East Kilbride, and a nationwide sustainability refurbishment programme at existing Operation Centres.

Phil Briggs, Copart UK’s director of operation centres, transport and engineering, said: “We’re fully committed to continuously growing and improving services to our customers, so we’re pleased to be extending our Wisbech Operation Centre, more than doubling its storage capacity in the East of England.

“Not only will this further strengthen our unrivalled operational capabilities in this part of the country in line with the continued growth of the UK car parc, but with extreme weather events becoming more prevalent the provision of latent storage capacity for our customers is more important than ever.”
