PML invests £6M in Kent transport and logistics hub

25 January 2022/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Freight Forwarding, Logistics & Supply Chain


PML has invested £6 million in the purchase and extensive refurbishment of its Kent transport and logistics hub which extends to 220,000 sq.foot in total, incorporating a 44,000 sq.foot warehouse.

The Lympne site represents a prime location for hauliers, due to the excellent proximity to the motorway network, Channel Tunnel, and the ports (Dover and Folkestone) while also benefiting from the absence of any charges / penalties associated with using the roads within the Greater London area affected by the new LEZ standards.

In addition, the facility has achieved remote HRMC / DEFRA approved Border Control Post (previously known as a Border Inspection Post (BIP) status to enable a faster transit of consignments out of the Port of Dover.

PML signed contracts on the new warehouse in September and has completed the necessary refurbishments in time to deal with the issues Brexit will bring.

Commenting on the launch, managing director Mike Parr said, “This is a massive step for PML and once again demonstrates our commitment to spearheading new initiatives which challenge the status quo.

“In addition to proximity to the ports and Heathrow, we anticipate that haulage drivers will also appreciate the efficient and seamless service we will be able to deliver, enabling them to leave the trailer onsite while they take a rest break, as opposed to sitting in a queue worrying about the lengthy delays which could seriously impact on the condition of their perishable cargo.”
