Freight forwarding and warehousing specialists UKI Express Transport Ltd have taken 100,427 sq ft at Orbit Developments’ distribution warehouse scheme, M58 Skelmersdale.

The company carry over 1500 separate consignments per day through the UK via road, air and ocean so location was key when searching for a new distribution centre.

Managing Director, Peter Gummerson at UKI Express Transport commented on the decisions behind the relocation:

‘This move was imperative for our continued growth and in order to support our large portfolio of clients who currently ship in excess of 190,000 tonnes per year in to and around the United Kingdom.

‘We believe due to the buildings location and the quality of the facility, we can remain competitive and still offer more of our high-quality services to new and existing clients.’

UKI Express Transport’s new warehousing facility is situated off the M58 and close to M6 meaning Skelmersdale is ideally located for accessing the ports in Liverpool, motorway connections and Liverpool and Manchester airports for international shipping requirements. The scheme is owned by property landlord Orbit Developments with retained joint commercial property agents CBRE and Knight Frank.

Orbit Developments’ Divisional Director for Merseyside, Dennis Dwyer commented:

‘This is a significant letting for the site and demonstrates that the commercial market for units of this size is alive and kicking. Skelmersdale has an enviable location for logistics operators with its location being so close to the M6 and the National Motorway Network.’

‘We are continuing to market the site with a further 370,000 sq ft of refurbished distribution warehouse accommodation on the site with the first phase of circa 185,000 sq ft. being ready for end users to let at the end of October 2016’
