The Yearsley Logistics scheme – which covers 61,000 sq ft – is the first part of a wider £65m, 385,000 sq ft development known as SuperHub South.

The depot was built at the Great Haddon Employment Zone near Peterborough and has become the UK’s largest single site temperature controlled facility, creating more than 300 jobs. The phase completed in September 2018, when the temperature was pulled down to minus 30 degrees and became operational.

Subsequent phases will follow over the next few years.

The planning, design and build has been undertaken by Russells’ logistics development team and will be its ninth project for Yearsley Logistics.
