Bolloré takes 80,000 sq ft at Heathrow

Bolloré Logistics, formerly SDV, has taken an 80,000 sq ft warehouse as Skyline Heathrow, which is near the cargo terminal at the airport.

The unit has been developed by SEGRO and Aviva Investors, through their joint venture, Airport Property Partnership (APP), and is due for completion this month.

Bolloré has signed a 15 year lease on the unit. It is an existing long-term SEGRO customer with two buildings, both at Heathrow, totalling 60,000 sq ft. The company now has more than 10,000 employees across 102 locations.

Managing director Stuart Innes said: “Bolloré Logistics are delighted to be continuing our long standing relationship with SEGRO and look forward to occupying such a high grade facility. Bolloré Logistics firmly believe that the Skyline development is perfectly suited to the long term ambition of our business and sends a message to the market about our intent to be at the very top of our industry.”

Alan Holland, director of APP and SEGRO’s business unit director for Greater London, said: “We’re pleased to continue our long-term relationship with Bolloré Logistics. We pride ourselves on working with our existing customers and this signing is testament to how we are able to meet their needs and help them to achieve their business objectives. Skyline is the perfect development for Bolloré with great connectivity to Heathrow, London and the UK’s motorway network.”
