Southampton Docks Development Update

Last week saw the first double end frame racking bay fixed into a vertical position.

This provides the first 28 pallet spaces, when complete we will have 30,048.

The new £23 million distributioncentre under final stages of development at the container Port of Southampton enhancing Import Services’ compelling port-centric logistics capacity.

The warehouse has been designed to BREEAM ‘excellent’ sustainability standard in close collaboration with port owner ABP and once complete will also feature a further £2.5million roof mounted solar array investment from ABP. This solar panel installation will more than double the existing solar power generated on the port.

Pictured below: the first 28 pallet spaces.

Below is our live feed time-lapse of the development, which started in January 2020.

Watch the video below to take a virtual tour of the new facility – opening June 2021.
