Euro Pool System, one of the major logistics providers of reusable packaging in the European supply chain, has signed a 10-year lease in the UK for iP1a, a high-quality 10,850 m2 distribution centre.
iP1a is the third of four speculatively developed warehouses to be completed at iPort, Doncaster in 2022. All buildings are designed with an A rating for EPC (Energy Performance Certificates) and with a Very Good BREEAM score.
“As Euro Pool System is an innovative and leading company in sustainability and efficiency in the fresh food supply chain with their reusable packaging containers (RPCs), we are delighted to be able to facilitate their growth requirements in the UK,” said John Clements, director of Verdion. “Discussions were already underway well before the building was completed, which is proof that the demand we are experiencing from potential tenants is high. It shows the importance of our broader speculative development programme.”
“iPort is one of the UK’s most advanced multimodal logistics hubs and industrial accommodation, close to Junction 3 of the M18 and the East Coast Main Line,” said Dirk Vercammen, Regional Director, region West at Euro Pool System.
“It is the ideal base and strategic location for our expansion in the UK to meet the needs of our retail customers using cutting-edge solutions.”
In addition to this year’s 63,000 m2 of speculative development and existing facilities for Amazon, Fellowes, CEVA, Lidl, Maritime Transport, Dusk, Kingsbury Press and Woodland Group, iPort’s remaining 158,000 m2 includes capacity for further specialist buildings up to 74,000 m2.
It also benefits from an award-winning multimodal on-site rail freight terminal. iPort Rail is increasingly used by companies based locally and across the region who want to reduce CO2 in their supply chains, with rail links to major UK seaports.
