ICP continues its international growth with the opening of new facilities in Milton Keynes, UK.
The multinational company, which opened its first warehouse in Milton Keynes in 2015, continues its expansion process in the UK. This decision is aimed at meeting the needs of current customers as well as the growing market demand and evolution of the sector.
The new warehouse has a total surface area of 220,400 sq ft and has 16 Dock level entry points, 4 ground level accesses to facilitate the entry and exit of trucks and 35 HGV trailer parking spaces. With 15 meters clear internal height, the platform has the capacity to house 35,000 racked pallet locations. In addition, to offer maximum security to its customers, the warehouse has its own 24-hour surveillance.
José Paños, managing Director at ICP in the United Kingdom, stated that “the opening of the new platform is a great event. Not only will it allow us to provide a better service to our customers, but it will also have a very positive impact on the local economy by expanding our network of suppliers and partners and generating new jobs”.
To carry out this important expansion project, ICP has not forgotten about sustainability. It has sought to reduce energy consumption by using skylights to make the most of natural light and by installing LED lighting. The necessary measures have also been taken into account to minimize the environmental impact of the activity and recycling and material reuse practices have been implemented. This set of actions, among others, has made it possible for the platform to obtain the BREEAM excellent accreditation.
Connected to Europe
ICP has a network of its own platforms in Spain, Canary Islands, Portugal and France. Without a doubt, this is a great strategic advantage for UK customers who want to establish commercial relations with Europe without worrying about complex customs procedures.
An ICP customer in the United Kingdom can position its product on any of the company’s platforms and thus ensure both stock and delivery times, reducing costs and efforts.
