Segro chief operating officer, Andy Gulliford, said: “SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway will be truly multi-modal: with its proximity to the M1 providing easy road access to the whole of the UK; the fact that it neighbours East Midlands Airport – the UK’s second largest freight airport – and that we are building a Strategic Freight Interchange as part of the scheme.”
Burbage Realty, CBRE and Savills are agents for the scheme.
