The ten-year leases are for GT257, a 257,855 sq ft warehouse in Bardon, Leicestershire and Logic305, a 304,751 sq ft warehouse in Weybridge, Surrey.

Amazon will incorporate both logistics warehouses into their UK distribution network for orders placed through www.amazon.co.uk.

Charlie Howard, Managing Director - UK, Logicor said:

We are delighted to support Amazon’s expansion of their UK distribution network. Both Bardon and Weybridge provide excellent strategic access to a high proportion of the UK population. These leases also strengthen our existing relationship with Amazon in the UK and Europe.

The GT257 lease commences immediately, whilst the Weybridge lease will start in September 2015 once property refurbishment works complete.
