Prologis RFI DIRFT is recognised as the most successful rail freight interchange and logistics park in the UK. Located at the centre of the country, DIRFT is close to the West Coast Mainline railway and the M1 motorway. Infrastructure work has started on the third phase of the development, which has detailed planning permission for 7.9 million sq ft of logistics space and a new rail terminal.
Prologis Park West London is situated just 1.5 miles from the M4 and is strategically located to serve Heathrow airport, greater London, the Thames valley and beyond
To help our customers reduce their operational CO2 emissions and to help their employees to save up to £1,000 a year in transport costs, we are setting up Green Travel Plans at our parks across the UK. Green Travel Plans are already in place at 12 sites including: Prologis Park Pineham and Prologis Park Marston Gate, Prologis Park Dunstable and Prologis Park Heathrow.
The Green Travel Plans are run through websites dedicated to individual parks and employees of participating companies are encouraged to join. Once they become members, employees can seek a lift from or offer a lift to other members. Similarly, they can find a companion with whom to cycle or walk to work. Members can find potential matches – either within their own company or the wider network - by using an interactive mapping facility. They are then given contact details for potential sharers along with safety and car-sharing tips.
While offering benefits to employees, the Green Travel websites are a useful management tool for our customers. Since members are encouraged to complete a travel survey, their employers can track modal shift and receive additional information on reductions in carbon emissions and financial savings.
The Green Travel plans also benefit the wider community by reducing the number of cars on the roads.
As a result, there is less congestion, less pollution and fewer parking problems.
