Verdion launches iPort Phase 2 with new warehouse deal
Pan-European logistics provider Verdion has launched the second phase of its iPort logistics hub in Doncaster (UK) by leasing 68,000 sqm to an online retailer. Set to be complete in Q2/2020, the new warehouse will be the first building to start on site on the 1,210,000 sqm second phase, which covers the southern part of iPort and includes landscaping and environmental buffer zones.
iPort Phase 2 has the capacity for a further 279,000 sqm of developable logistics space, including this first new mega-warehouse. Outline planning is in place, the site access road is complete, all services including access to 52 MVA power are available, and individual building plots are all currently being prepared for immediate development.
John Clements, European development director at Verdion, said: “iPort is already the UK’s most advanced multimodal logistics hub and it’s now shaping up to become the most successful." (mw)
