AIPUT (Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust) has let its newly completed ‘Black Arrow’ warehouse at Poyle Trading Estate near Heathrow as the first UK base for international freight forwarder, EFL Global.
The new warehouse building will be operationally net zero and incorporates a range of environmental initiatives including roof-mounted photovoltaic panels and other low and zero carbon technologies, which together will deliver a 30% reduction in CO₂ emissions.
The 27,760sq ft warehouse occupies a 1.2 acre site and will primarily handle stock imports for clothing retailers.
EFL Global president – Americas region, Evan Rosen, said: “We are elated to expand our business and operations in England. EFL Global continues to invest in key regions that are most important to our clients, which includes strategic planning and expansions in the European region. This market is a critical part of our journey to provide unparalleled logistics and supply chain services across the globe.”
