Uniserve to build DC at Felixstowe

Logistics firm Uniserve has purchased 10.6ha of land at the port of Felixstowe and plans to build a £45m (US$63.9m) distribution centre on the site.

Iain Liddell, MD of Uniserve Holdings, said building a facility on the port would allow it to save customers money.

"The portcentric development will deliver cost savings on inland transport, reduced carbon emissions and enhanced speed of service,” said Liddell.

“This project will also provide an unrivalled opportunity for Uniserve's customers to join with the company, in developing a purpose built port-side distribution centre, with the added attraction of a rail link capability.”
