Clipper Logistics is to take a newly-completed 304,000 sq ft distribution centre at Northampton.
The deal with Goodman sees the 3PL sign up for floorspace at the Northampton Commercial Park development.
The logistics centre, which also includes 16,000 sq ft of office space over three storeys to manage operations, was completed at the start of March and is currently being fitted out for ‘go-live’ this summer. The fit-out includes a multi-tier mezzanine structure and sortation capability. The site has been let to Clipper Logistics Plc on a 10-year lease and will be operated as a shared use retail logistics/fulfilment facility. The centre is expected to become fully operational in autumn 2016.
Goodman Managing Director Charles Crossland said: “The signing of this lease agreement with Clipper reinforces our expertise in this rapidly expanding sector and highlights the ongoing success of our development activity in the UK.
Furthermore, it consolidates our position as a leading provider of industrial real estate, with 1.25 million sq ft of grade A logistics and distribution space leased or under offer so far this year.
"We continue to receive strong enquiries for new space recently completed and under construction, together with opportunities for bespoke development across our growing land bank, and expect to make further announcements in due course.”
