Northampton is one of the most established locations within the logistics ‘Golden Triangle’ and arguably in the UK. It is very close to the north/south routes of the M1 and M40 and within easy reach of the M6/A14 providing East West links. This puts 90% of the population of England and Wales within a four hour HGV drive. The A14 provides a direct connection to the deep-water port of Felixstowe. Southampton is as easy to reach and the Port of Liverpool is only a three hour HGV drive away. There are five international airports within two hours drive and the major rail freight terminals of DIRFT and Hams Hall can be reached in 40 minutes and 1.5 hrs respectively.
As one of the UK’s major logistics locations Northampton boasts a large and suitably skilled logistics labour force. Over the last 15 years logistics employment in Northamptonshire has increased by 50.9%. The whole of Northamptonshire can be reached within a 40 minute drive-to-work time of G-Park Northampton.
