DSV opens Northampton warehouse

[ December 22, 2022   //   ]

DSV has opened a 380,000sq ft temperature-controlled warehouse in Northampton. The BREEAM ‘Outstanding’-certified building will be one of the largest in the logistics and forwarding company’s Midlands portfolio and will significantly increase its UK footprint.

It will incorporate DSV Solutions UK’s largest GDP-compliant temperature-controlled solution for large and small healthcare companies that need to be able to scale their stocks quickly.

It has 36 dock-leveller bay doors, two ground level unloading bays, a photovoltaic system, 66 electric car chargers and a fully equipped gym.

 Rainwater harvesting will be used for flushing toilets  and high-performance LED lighting supported by motion sensors have been installed, reducing the total power demand. As part of the Brackmills Gateway site wide scheme beyond the site boundary, there landscape buffers have been created and large-scale planting of native woodland species, planting for wildlife habitat and wildflower buffers, roosting boxes for bats and nesting boxes for birds.
