Kuehne+Nagel at Prologis Park Wellingborough

The Requirement

  • Kuehne+Nagel had already decided to take Crossflow 540 at Prologis Park Wellingborough when it won the contract to provide a national distribution centre for the Whitbread to supply Costa Coffee, Brewer’s Fayre and Premier Inn Hotels
  • The new contract meant that Kuehne+Nagel had to finalise the deal on the 540,000 sq ft building and that Prologis had to complete a bespoke fit-out within seven months

The Solution

  • Building on long-term working relationships, Prologis was able to meet the unusually tight deadline
  • Prologis provides distribution space for Kuehne+Nagel in seven countries around the world and the partnership between the two companies meant that the legal documentation could be completed in just three weeks
  • At the fit-out stage, Prologis was able to rely on its long-standing relationship with main contractors Fitzpatrick to ensure that specialist facilities, such as a 60,000 sq ft freezer area and a 30,000 sq ft chilled zone were installed and fully operational in time for Whitbread's arrival

The Result

"The Wellingborough facility is now our largest multi-user site in the UK. The pace of both the deal and the fit-out has been phenomenal; frozen, chilled and ambient areas in place in just a few months. Everyone has worked so hard and we are delighted with the results."
Clive Millward, Contract Director, Kuenhe+Nagel
