Rockingham plans expansion of Automotive Logistics Hub

Rockingham Automotive Logistics Hub

Rockingham is expanding the capacity of its Automotive Logistic Hub, with space for more than 40,000 vehicles on site.

The 250-acre facility will offer end-to-end vehicle processing, including PDI, refurbishment, re-marketing and de-fleet - supporting dealers, manufacturers and third-party suppliers.

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.”

The new site will also offer 40,000sq ft of serviced office space.

Rockingham first confirmed the expansion following the announcement that the race circuit was to be closed.

Situated just off the A14, Rockingham’s central England location in Corby Northamptonshire provides easy access to the UK’s major road arteries being just under 30 miles from junction 15 (Northampton) of the M1 and 20 miles to the A1.

The site is surrounded by protective fencing, with entry and exit only possible through manned access points. In turn, 24hr security patrols are complemented by a state-of-the-art CCTV system.

“Rockingham offers the automotive sector great facilities and is already home to a number of leading automotive logistics companies including Groupe CAT, GEFCO, IT Fleet Automotive and City Auction Group,” adds Wright.

These companies provide a range of storage, refurbishment and remarketing services to dealer groups, rental companies, fleet operators, leasing and finance companies.

As it develops, Rockingham says it will offer “game-changing” facilities to the UK’s automotive industry, due to its space, location, planning and infrastructure, which will include provision for electric vehicles.
