Maritime Transport expands at iPort

The additional four acres doubles the size of Maritime Transport's HGV parking facility at the Doncaster site

Maritime Transport has agreed a deal with Verdion for more space at the iPort logistics hub just outside Doncaster.

The transport business has taken an additional four acres on a long-term lease, doubling the size of its HGV parking facility on-site.

Maritime Transport will now be able to accommodate up to 170 HGVs and 85 car parking spaces. The business took an initial four acres in 2020, including a 4,000 sq ft office and amenity building, and the latest deal reflects its growth.

The deal follows Verdion's lettings to Woodland Group and Euro Pool Systems earlier this year. A further building, iP2f, which totals 174,380 sq ft, is available for immediate occupation.

iP10, the final facility in Verdion's latest round of speculative development, is set to complete later this month, bringing a further 259,266 sq ft to the market.  

John Clements, executive director at Verdion, said: "Maritime Transport has already proved that iPort is a strong strategic location, with the business benefitting from outstanding road links as well as our on-site rail freight terminal.

"This decision to expand was a natural progression given the strength of demand for services and we were pleased to be able to accommodate this growth alongside our wider development plans. Building iP2f is currently the only Grade A unit available in Yorkshire and our next completion should also see significant interest given the region's lack of supply."

Simon Smart, chief executive at Maritime Transport, added: "We are pleased to agree a long-term lease to extend our transport depot at iPort on the back of strong market demand and customer support. iPort Doncaster is an excellent strategic fit within our network and the development at iPort with its exceptional transport links is second to none. The additional land will double the size of our operation which only commenced at the start of 2020."

Gent Visick, CBRE and Colliers are the retained leasing agents for iPort.
