Work has started on a purpose built warehouse for DPD couriers at an industrial park off the A46 Lincoln, which is expected to open next year and create up to 90 new jobs.
Working in partnership with Gratongate and Bilfinger GVA commercial property agent, Pygott & Crone secured a 20 year lease on the 70 acre Network 46 business park near Witham St Hughs.
Network 46 provides design and build opportunities for industrial, warehouse and office use from 20,000 to 1 million sq ft 11 miles from Lincoln city centre.
The purpose built 42,783 sq ft cross-loaded distribution warehouse will include some 30 loading doors designed to meet DPD’s needs and is expected to open in April 2016.
In the last five years, DPD has experienced growth in the UK due to the success of its Predict service, a service which notifies customers of their one hour delivery slot in advance so that they don’t have to wait in all day for a parcel.
Tim Downing, Senior Partner at Pygott & Crone, said: “With the development of the A46 dual carriageway, Lincoln is now attracting more international business. We’re delighted to welcome DPD to Network 46, which is proving to be a location of choice for growing firms and a strong distribution hub to the East and West Midlands. ”
