DHL has taken a second lease at SEGRO’s East Midlands Gateway in Leicestershire.



DHL has taken a 10-year lease on the 192,000 sq ft facility, which brings the total space pre-let to DHL at SLP-EMG close to 900,000 sq ft.

This most recent deal comes after an agreement for lease for a 694,000sq ft unit was signed during early summer 2020. Both units will be completed to the high sustainability level of BREEAM Excellent

Once the units are complete, more than half of a potential 6 million sq ft of accommodation will have been developed, with occupiers including the likes of Games Workshop, XPO Logistics, Amazon, and Kuhne+Nagel.

Andrew Pilsworth, SEGRO’s Business Unit Director, National Logistics, said: “The latest addition with DHL at SLP-EMG continues to highlight the demand for modern, sustainable space that is supremely well located.

“We have now contracted over half the available space, securing inward investment and creating jobs across the region. There’s a vibrant atmosphere on site and it’s good to see the high levels of activity of our customers during these uncertain times.”

Today (26th October) saw Martime introduce a new rail service between DP World London Gateway and its terminal at EMG.
