Global delivery firm DHL is taking up a lease for a 360,000 sq ft building on the G. Park site in Liverpool.
DHL plans to use the construction as a distribution centre which will deliver across the north-west of England and has signed to remain on the site for ten years.
The G. Park warehouse facilities, owned by international global provider of sustainable logistics Gazeley, are perfectly placed for a distribution hub in this area of the country being so close to both the M6 and M62 motorways.
Gazeley and DHL have a commercial relationship dating back to 2005, with the former providing logistics space for the latter across its European network, but this is their first co-operation in the UK.
Bruce Topley, Development Director at Gazeley, commented: “To continue our relationship with a brand as successful as DHL is of huge importance to us.
“Its continued confidence in Gazeley is, we believe, testament to our industry leading construction qualities, strategic locations and the ability to meet our customer’s business requirements.”
This warehouse is the first to be completed on the G. Park Liverpool site and was constructed in a joint venture with MetLife Real Estate Investments.
DHL will move into the premises at an unspecified time during the second quarter of this year.
