Uniserve, the largest British privately owned international freight and supply chain management company in the UK, has reached an advanced stage in the plans for its Global Gateway Super DC at the Port of Felixstowe
The Super DC is a multi-user facility and is the first of five portcentric facilities to be constructed and operated in key locations around the world.
With a footprint of 47,700 sq m and with a height of 40m, the Felixstowe Super DC will provide some 139,000 sq. m. (1.5m sq. ft.) of space and will incorporate a bottling and drinks logistics operation, chilled and cold stores, e-fulfilment, fashion and garment hanging/packing operations together with other dedicated services for a number of Uniserve’s customers, all under one roof.
The building has been designed to maximise both flexibility and efficiency, and operations will also incorporate electricals, pharmaceuticals, high value products, a comprehensive range of pick and pack, assembly, processing and returns services, along with UK and European delivery and collection services.
A Uniserve spokesman commented:
“Our network of partner carriers is capable of providing the best delivery solutions at the best rates.”
The Felixstowe site is unique and will be the first significant development in the logistics sector at Britain’s largest port for over 30 years.
In 2014 Uniserve achieved the first step by obtaining detailed planning consent and commenting on the current status of the development, Murray Gibson, Business Development Manager at Uniserve added:
“After several months in the design stage, the project is currently out to tender.”
