Hermes is to double the capacity of its new Omega Warrington depot following a 3-acre land deal.
Hermes has acquired a further three acres of land from Omega Warrington Limited. Te additional HGV parking space means Hermes can double its parcel handling capacity from its adjacent 160,000 sq ft distribution hub from 500,000 parcels per day to around 1m.
Aherne Property subsequently secured an immediate sale and leaseback of the land with Hermes Parcelnet’s existing landlord LaSalle Investment Managers agreeing an 18 year lease.
Adam Leach of Hermes said: “This was an important asset for Hermes to acquire in order to enable growth plans at our adjoining facility – the space here will facilitate our continued growth and improve operational efficiency from this strategically important distribution hub.”
Williams Tarr has been appointed as the contractor to carry out the works, which will provide additional HGV capacity and is due to be fully operational shortly.
Aherne Property Consultants and Lambert Smith Hampton zacted on behalf of Hermes Parcelnet, Bilfinger GVA and Jones Lang LaSalle acted for Omega Warrington.
