The investment, which has been described by the company as "a milestone" in its growth, will act as a distribution hub for major retailers and grocers, as well as creating 100 jobs.
The space at G Park, at junction 31 of the M62, has storage for 39,000 pallets and it will provide more than 100 jobs for drivers and warehouse staff.
Nigel Tullett, director of corporate and strategy development at Bibby Distribution, said: “The new facility at G Park is a crucial strategic development that will allow us to better serve our major flagship customers across the North of England. Bibby Distribution G Park will be a vital hub for our operations for many years to come.
“This new facility, the most modern ever operated by Bibby Distribution, is a milestone in our business growth, reflecting our confidence in the future of our operations.”
The third-party logistics company contributes annual revenues of £230m to its parent, the £1.7bn-turnover Bibby Line Group.
