Dachser opens new UK headquarters

Dachser has opened its new UK headquarters at Brackmills Business Park, Northampton.

The 16 acre site includes 178,000 sq ft of warehousing space.

The transhipment warehouse comprises 64,000 sq ft dedicated to cross-docking with 34 dock-level loading doors and 9 level-access loading doors under canopy. There is potential for a further 26,000 sq ft of space and an additional 21 dock-loading doors.

The contract logistics warehouse totals 114,000 sq ft with storage space for 20,000 pallets and 8 dock-level loading doors. With a wide aisle pallet racking configuration, this new facility will offer flexible solutions to customers for all their outsourcing supply chain needs.

Nick Lowe, Dachser UK’s managing director, said: “This is an ideal site from a logistics viewpoint with excellent links to both the A45 and M1. Remaining in the same vicinity as our previous operational base has meant that all our existing staff have happily stayed with us to ensure service continuity.”

Dachser also has branches in Dartford and Rochdale. More new branches in the UK are planned for the future.
