Pharmacy2U joins Amazon and Eddie Stobart on the first phase of Mountpark Bardon, which comprises three units totalling 1.45 million sq ft.
“We believe Mountpark Bardon offers logistics operators one of best opportunities on the M1 corridor,” said Tom Kilmister, Development Director, Mountpark UK and Ireland. “We are delighted that we could offer the final unit at phase one to Pharmacy2U.
