From distribution hubs to factories and power stations to warehouses, the UK’s industrial and logistics sector is undergoing huge change.
Traditional heavy industries remain central to the economy, but operators face an ongoing battle to remain competitive and at the cutting edge.
In parallel, shifting behaviour is fundamentally changing the way goods reach consumers, and both traditional and online retailers are grappling to best serve shoppers. Across the spectrum of industrial and logistics property, old assumptions are being cast aside and new solutions are needed.
Our experience in the sector enables a genuinely innovative and award-winning approach. Underpinned by our Prime Logistics and Multi-Let research, our industrial and logistics team brings its expert understanding and wide experience to bear on a full spectrum of issues. Our work in agency, investment and development is combined with strengths in planning, business rates and lease consultancy to create a full-service offer that is highly-valued by the sector’s leading investors, developers and occupiers.
Operating nationwide, our logistics team is one of the UK’s largest, operating across a wide range of instructions and assets. Clients include Jaguar Land Rover, Prologis, M&G Real Estate, Yodel and Peugeot, BP, British Energy, Michelin Tyre, Peugeot, Rolls-Royce, Royal Mail, Siemens, Shell, TDG and Unilever.

Daily Mail & General Trust (DMGT) needed to sell its former printworks near Didcot, Oxfordshire. Having been designed-and-built to house printing presses, the 250,000 sq ft building is highly specialised – incorporating high ceilings, strengthened floors, and large power supply – and required a similar specialised sales approach. We were appointed to manage the sale for DMGT.
