Construction has finished on Yusen Logistics’ latest addition to their UK warehousing portfolio, increasing their nationwide footprint to 186,000 square metres.
The building, which is the first unit at Prologis Park Wellingborough West, has been designed to achieve a minimum BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), ‘very good’ accreditation, the best EPC rating possible for its size and has been awarded The Planet Mark sustainability certification, which recognises commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability.
Strategically located next to the A509 and within close proximity to the A45, A14 and the M1, the site is ideally situated to serve key markets and urban areas within the UK including Birmingham and London, as well as the East Coast ports.
Kevin Appleton, Managing Director for Yusen Logistics UK, commented: “We’re delighted with our new building. We have a long-standing relationship with Prologis and have operated from Wellingborough for many years. The combination of Wellingborough’s location and Prologis’ delivery capability made a new purpose-built facility at Prologis Park Wellingborough West the ideal choice for our new operation.”
James Wright, Vice President for Prologis UK, added: “Yusen Logistics is the first major occupier to our brand-new park and it’s great to see a leading international company recognising Wellingborough as a destination for business. Yusen’s in-house team were really great to work with and we’re confident their presence will be a springboard for other like-minded businesses to join them at Prologis Park Wellingborough West.”
