The Pallet Network at Prologis Park Midpoint

Customer Case Studies

When customers choose Prologis, they tend to stay with us and one of the reasons for this is that they can grow with us. Because we have a large building portfolio as well as sites with planning permission and a programme of speculative development, we can usually deliver the facilities our customers need to support their operations.

The Pallet Network at Prologis Park Midpoint

Location, Location, Location

One customer who has been with us for a number of years is The Pallet Network (TPN), one of the UK’s leading palletised freight distribution organisations. Originally, TPN was based at a 224,000 square foot facility at Prologis Central Park Rugby.  

By 2010, the company needed larger premises and we were able to offer a 314,000 square foot BREEAM ‘Excellent’ building at Prologis Park Midpoint. The nature of TPN’s business means that location is a priority and since Prologis Park Midpoint is within minutes of the M6, the M6 toll and the M42, it was an ideal site. As Adam Leonard, managing director, TPN said:

“Our distribution hub at Rugby was an excellent site and it served our business very well.  Despite the recession, TPN’s business continued to grow and it became clear that we needed a larger facility to ensure our expansion plans can be implemented.  We looked closely at a number of potential sites, but Prologis Park Midpoint met all our requirements including size, location and minimal environmental impact.”

When TPN once again needed room to expand, it decided to stay at Midpoint and at the beginning of January 2013, we signed a deal for a 367,000 square foot purpose-built facility on a neighbouring site, which was designed to achieve the same high standards of sustainability.

We are delighted that TPN has stayed with us for so long and we look forward to continuing our working relationship for years to come.

One of the reasons we have chosen to stay at Midpoint is that it is a perfect location for our business. With easy access to 11 motorway junctions, we are at the heart of the transport network and in a perfect position to offer the best possible service to our members and their customers.
