Construction has finished on Yusen Logistics’ latest warehouse at Prologis Park Wellingborough West, which gives the group a nationwide footprint of more than 2 million ft².

The new 37,000ft² building has been designed to achieve a minimum BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) 'very good' accreditation. This is the best EPC rating possible for its size.

Next to the A509 and close to the A45, A14 and the M1, the new warehouse will allow Yusen to serve customers in Birmingham and London, as well as the East Coast ports.

Kevin Appleton, MD for Yusen Logistics UK, said: “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.”

Yusen becomes the first occupier at the new park development and the operation should be fully live from August following a transition period starting in April.
