A 375,000 sq ft logistics building at one of the North West’s premier logistics locations

A truly exceptional scheme

Logistics North is one of the biggest developments of its type being brought forward in the North of England. The 250 acre scheme offers immediate access to Junction 4 of the M61 and is just 3 miles from the M60 and M62, providing easy access to the key ports of Liverpool and Hull.

375 at Logistics North will also have access to the adjoining new 550 acre country park, providing businesses and their employees with an outstanding surrounding environment.

This is the second unit being developed by First Industrial and Exeter Property Group at Logistics North. The previous speculative build was a 360,000 sq ft unit which is occupied by Amazon.

The scheme is fully supported by Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority

Logistics North lies at the heart of the region’s motorway network, adjacent to Junction 4 of the M61 and within 10 miles of Manchester.

The M62 is three miles away, providing easy access to the key ports of Liverpool and Hull; the M6 is within a 20 minute drive, providing good access to Scotland and the Midlands.


“Logistics North is a landmark development not just for Bolton, but for Greater Manchester and the North West. It will help the region to realise its ambitions of attracting high-value logistics and manufacturing employers, creating highly sought after new jobs and securing millions of pounds of new investment over the next 15 years.”

Demographics

Bolton has the second highest employee base in Greater Manchester, yet with wages below the regional average labour costs remain attractive to potential employers, as does the good mix of skills amongst the workforce.

Logistics employment in Bolton is higher than the regional and national averages and will rise by over 15% by 2020.

Public transport links are excellent and help to ensure over 1million people live within a 45 minute journey to work time from Bolton town centre. This will be further enhanced by the completion of Trinity Interchange – a new integrated bus and rail hub adjacent to Bolton railway station.
