Noatum starts work on Medway site

[ February 25, 2020   //   ]

Spanish-owned retail supply chain specialist, Noatum Logistics (formerly MIQ Logistics in UK) has agreed terms on a new 150,000sq ft retail and eCommerce facility at London Medway  Commercial Park.

The site is due for completion at the end of 2020, and will incorporate multiple mezzanines to add a further 225,000sq ft of capacity, primarily for automation, eCommerce order picking and fulfilment.

Contracts have been exchanged and construction commenced last month. It is due for completion in ten months.

Contract logistics director North Europe, Steve Hicks, commented: “Continued growth of online sales will drive demand for pick and pack space, which is why we are forecasting that this new development will be filled shortly after completion and will almost entirely be taken over by existing customers. When fully operational, the new facility will be capable of processing over 50,000 pieces a day, equivalent to 3 million + parcels a year.”

Noatum’s clients include French Connection, Phase 8 and GANT.
