Oasis Group has taken on a long-term lease on a 108,973 sq ft warehouse at DP World’s logistics park at London Gateway.
Work will begin next spring with the distribution hub due to open in October. It will be built to BREEAM “outstanding” criteria - sustainability standard for building construction.
Ernst Schulze, DP World UK chief executive, said: “We are delighted to welcome Oasis Group to our port-centric logistics park at London Gateway which is home to supply chain solutions, high-quality warehousing and light manufacturing. It also has outstanding road links and access to an adjacent rail terminal.
“DP World in the UK is at the heart of Britain’s trading future, providing the right trading infrastructure, smart logistical solutions and the benefits of freeport status to our customers. We believe in the UK market and have the ambition and the resources to boost growth, support businesses, create jobs and improve living standards.”
Conan Wade, Oasis Group property and facilities director, said: “We are delighted to take this new facility at DP World’s London Gateway Logistics Park. This is an excellent opportunity to expand our information management business, whilst supporting our ambitious environmental goals.
“We are attracted by the 21m clear internal height - which allows for greater operational efficiencies and deployment of optimised racking systems; whilst the rainwater harvesting system, extensive solar panels and bespoke electric vehicle charging all support our ESG strategy."
