New multimodal hub for East Midlands airport

Two property partners have launched what they describe as an inland port, close to East Midlands Airport in the UK.
Investment trust Segro and property developer Roxhill say that the Segro Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway, a 700 acre `inland port’ with a new rail freight terminal, pointing out that it neighbours East Midlands Airport – the UK’s second largest freight airport.
Segro is funding £100 million of infrastructure at the ten-plot site including a 50 acre rail terminal and road improvements, including better connections to the M1 motorway.
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.
