Eddie Stobart builds for the future at DIRFT

[ March 22, 2022   //   ]

Work is underway on Eddie Stobart’s new, two-unit campus at Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT). Eddie Stobart has operated out of its existing facilities at DIRFT since 1997, and the plan is to vacate these properties on completion of the new units. Logistics property developer Prologis is providing the haulier with two buildings, totalling 538,000 sq. ft. Both buildings will benefit from a shared loading yard, which can be divided if needed. With a clear internal height of 18m, the buildings will also feature level access points, allowing for the loading and unloading of curtain-sided HGVs.
