Suffolk Park Project Details

The Suffolk Park development re-affirms the rapidly increasing popularity of the A14 as a logistics location. In under six months two developments alone, account for 1.1m sq ft of warehousing and will create around 700 jobs for the local economy.

Weerts Group selected the Suffolk Park location because of its proximity to the Felixstowe ferry connection which eases transportation to the European continent, and its proximity to Junction 45 of the A14, providing fast links into the UK motorway network.

Weerts Group is headquartered in Liège, Belgium, and has operations in Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Hungary and Romania. Its General Logistics Services division offers its clients comprehensive solutions for warehousing, transport and value-add logistics services, with a strong focus on innovative solutions and engaging in continuous improvement projects with its clients.
