DPD acquire strategically significant Dartford unit

DPD have signed up for one of the largest last mile logistics depots serving south-east London. David Thame reports.

The parcel operator has taken a 10-year lease on a 47,888 sq ft new build distribution unit in Littlebrook, Dartford in a deal with M&G Real Estate.

The unit has direct access to Central London via the A2, A20, and A13, and is in proximity to the various ports and airports catering to the South East and London supply chain, as well as being situated within a 30-mile radius of 4.7 million households.

“The demand we are seeing for greater adoption of online commerce is expected to remain strong, and as consumer expectation for speedy deliveries continues to rise, it has never been more important for last-mile logistics operators, like DPD, to secure prime locations where they can quickly and efficiently deliver to the end consumer,” Tim Harding, an Associate Director in Colliers International’s Industrial & Logistics team, said.
