Expansion project for 3PL company into Barnsley business park

Third party logistics company Price Express Transport has taken 75,760 sq ft at a Barnsley business park in a deal brokered by Knight Frank.

Price Express Transport, which provides services for the transportation of non-standard freight and palletised goods secured two units at Metro Trading Centre, Barugh Green, Barnsley as part of a nationwide expansion project.

The 10 year lease deal, with Knight Frank advising Angram Trading Limited on the letting, sees the logistics company add to its multiple sites across the country including Doncaster, Bristol and East Grinstead in West Sussex.

John Jarman from the Sheffield office of Knight Frank, said: “Price Express Transport currently have multiple sites and this move catered for an expansion project.

“The two industrial/warehouse units benefit from ancillary offices and good motorway access to Junction 37/38 of the M1 Motorway.

“The letting completed following refurbishment upon vacation of the previous tenants and has resulted in the estate being 100 per cent occupied. This minimum void period reflects strong demand for good quality second hand accommodation within the region.”

Established in 1975, Price Express Transport specialised in the delivery of urgent freight and the transportation of computer equipment, before moving into the field of catering equipment including refrigeration cabinets and handling electrical enclosure cabinets and vending machines.

After realising the future competitiveness of standard pallet deliveries, it joined the PalletFORCE pallet network in 1991 as a shareholding member.
