Rockingham Automotive Logistics Hub

Rockingham Group is investing an additional £12 million in its de-fleet facility at its Automotive Logistics Hub.

Work has already commenced on a new, purpose-built facility, which will provide 50,000 square ft of vehicle processing space and a capacity to process more than 50,000 vehicles per year.

The company was previously working on a site that could process 40,000 vehicles annually.

Rockingham also has planning consent for 1.3m square feet of large-scale distribution warehousing, with easy access to the UK’s major road arteries.

Stuart Wright, principal of Rockingham Group, said: “Our ongoing investment in the 250 acre facility is part of our overall strategy to create the UK’s leading independent automotive logistics centre with vehicle storage capacity along with large scale PDI and de-fleet vehicle processing facilities.

“Our customers are on course to handle PDI and de-fleet contracts in excess of 150,000 vehicles over the next 12-18 months.  We have secured major automotive firms including GEFCO, Groupe CAT, IT Fleet and City Auction Group at Rockingham and have capacity to house more operators. 

“We have the flexibility to build bespoke de-fleet and remarketing facilities, regardless of how large or technical the requirements. There is easy access for arrivals, hard surface roads, storage areas and space to create dedicated inspection, repair, and cleaning facilities.”

Rockingham Automotive Hub secure site is located in Corby central England with excellent road links to the nearby A1, M1, M6 and A14. 

Rockingham Automotive Logistics Hub has implemented a multi-million-pound investment in the former raceway and has already completed refurbishment of its onsite facilities, including an executive lounge and cafe, gym, offices, meeting rooms, rest rooms and upgraded offices for the site management team
