Panther Logistics expands to Foxcover Distribution Park

Will cover Scottish deliveries
Knight Frank has announced that the two-man delivery service specialist, Panther Logistics, had taken up a 133,000 sq ft warehouse at Foxcover Distribution Park in Seaham after outgrowing its 42,000 sq ft space at Follingsby Park in Gateshead.

Panther Logistics offers a premium, two-man delivery service where a white-gloved duo delivers and assembles any domestic goods in the customer’s home – from kitchen appliances to fitness equipment.

The company started off in 2013, with five staff, 40 deliveries a day, a £3m turnover and a 12,000 sq ft warehouse in Peterlee.
