Construction work has begun on DPD’s new 45,207 square foot urban logistics depot in the London borough of Newham. Owned by SEGRO, DPD has taken out a 25 year lease on the unit, that will be in the SEGRO Park Newham.
SEGRO released a statement that said, “SEGRO Park Newham, located at Jenkins Lane has been unlocked by SEGRO, following years of being undeveloped and unused. Through working with long-standing customer DPD, inward investment has been attracted to this strategically important site for urban logistics serving East London and the City. DPD will occupy a prominent position with direct access to the A13 and A406, with future phases of the development appealing to other logistics operators, trade counters, showrooms and hotels.
“The new DPD distribution centre will create 104 jobs, with SEGRO Park Newham creating up to 350 jobs in its entirety.”
Mark Wilkes of DPD, added: “SEGRO Park Newham is ideally located with fantastic access to road networks, enabling us to serve our customers across East London.”
Growing demand for e-commerce deliveries throughout the Capital has increased the need for depots such as this, as rapidly growing delivery companies invest to meet growing volumes of goods passing through their hands.
