A HAMPSHIRE logistics management and warehousing company has expanded its operations. Meachers Global Logistics has taken 20,016 sq ft in Unit 7 at Nursling Industrial Estate on a new three-year lease for an annual rent of £130,000.

The firm, which operates freight forwarding and transport services, already has its head office at the industrial estate alongside four other units.

Matthew Poplett, director in industrial and logistics agency at Jones Lang LaSalle’s Southampton office, said: “The landlord has made a considerable effort to refurbish these premises which gave Meachers the opportunity for immediate occupation.

“The unit is close to the docks and the M27 and this, coupled with the new yard and refurbishment of the unit, made it an ideal opportunity for a warehouse and distribution company.”
