Micro fulfilment centre set up in Deptford
19 May 2021
SEGRO has signed its first UK letting with a rapid grocery delivery service, agreeing a five-year lease with start-up Gorillas for a unit at SEGRO Park Deptford in south east London.
Gorillas will employ around eight people at the 3,500 sq ft unit, which will be used as a micro fulfilment centre. It will enable Gorillas to deliver orders to their customers’ doorsteps in as little as 10 minutes.
SEGRO MD, Greater London Alan Holland, said: “The emergence of rapid grocery delivery services is just the latest in a long line of e-commerce disruptors within the retail sector. More than ever the growth and success of these q-commerce ecosystems will rely on modern and well-positioned hubs so that they can offer the fastest and most convenient service to their customers.”
