Kuehne+Nagel takes Trafford Park site for Whitbread

Trafford Park, Manchester, UK: Kuehne+Nagel has taken a new warehouse in Trafford Park, Manchester and plans to install a chilled store for a contract with Whitbread.

Kuehne has taken a 10-year lease on Prupim’s 16,630sq metre Centrepoint V building. Kuehne is understood to have opted for Trafford Park due to its superb communications.

Howard George of B8 Real Estate says: “The supply of quality distribution units in the North West has diminished massively over the last couple of years. We have seen take-up at unprecedented levels and the lack of supply of distribution buildings is resulting in increased demand for build to suit, being the only option”.
