Hermes Parcelnet is set to double its parcel handling capacity with the expansion of its Omega Warrington distribution hub on a further three acres of land.
From its adjacent 160,000 sq ft distribution hub the capacity will rise from 500,000 per day to about one million parcels.
Aherne Property Consultants, together with Lambert Smith Hampton, acted on behalf of Hermes in the acquisition of the land from Warrington Omega Ltd.
Aherne secured an immediate sale and leaseback of the land with Hermes’ existing landlord LaSalle Investement managers, agreeing an 18-year term.
Williams Tarr has been appointed as the contractor to carry out the works, providing additional HGV capacity and is due to be fully operational shortly.
