Time 2 years ago

FORMERLY one of the UK’s best-known race circuits, Rockingham has announced the launch of its new 250-acre Automotive Logistics Hub.

The Northamptonshire site has planning consent for end-to-end automotive processing and 40,000 square feet of serviced office space.

The new hub offers open storage for more than 40,000 vehicles and has the capacity to handle the most ambitious of processing contracts. Rockingham can also accommodate large-scale PDI and de-fleet vehicle processing.

It also has the flexibility to build and operate de-fleet activities, regardless of how large or technical the requirements. There is easy access for arrivals, hard surface roads and storage areas and space to create repair, inspection and cleaning facilities.

Situated just off the A14, Rockingham’s central England location provides easy access to the UK’s major road arteries. The site is surrounded by protective fencing, with entry and exit only possible through manned access points. In turn, 24-hour security patrols are complemented by a state-of-the-art CCTV system.

Stuart Wright, principal of Rockingham Group, said: ‘We have big plans for Rockingham and are on course to create the UK’s leading state-of-the-art automotive logistics centre.

‘We plan to make a significant investment to redevelop and extend the facilities to prepare, de-fleet and remarket a greater volume of private and commercial vehicles.

‘We will provide our occupiers with the capacity to handle PDI and de-fleet contracts in excess of 150,000 vehicles per annum.

‘As it develops, Rockingham will supply game-changing facilities to the UK’s automotive industry.’
