DHL takes last-mile facility in Kent

DHL is to take a 110,400 sq ft warehouse in Kent after a deal with developer Panattoni, serving Greater London as a last-mile facility.

The parcels operator is the first to sign up for the 1.9 million sq ft Panattoni Park Aylesford development in Kent, with DHL, the global logistics company.

DHL has signed a 15-year lease on a facility with 12 dock doors, six-level access and a 50m yard.

The unit will be a last-mile facility for DHL serving Greater London.

Panattoni is already on site, carrying out pre-development work, and expects to complete building work in July 2022.

The 90-acre site close to junction 4 of the M20 motorway was formerly a printworks. The scheme includes new £7 million Bellingham Way link road.

 “Aylesford will be one of our largest logistics sites serving London and the Channel ports. When we acquired the site, we knew it would be enormously attractive to the logistics industry. The response from leading players has been fantastic, and the pre-let to DHL reflects that,” said Panattoni development director Anthony Watkins.

The agents for the site are CBRE, Avison Young and JLL.
