AIPUT secures new customers at Blackthorne Point


Aberdeen Standard Investment’s Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust (AIPUT) fund has secured new leasehold customers at Heathrow Airport’s Blackthorne Point logistics park.

Unit 12, 15 and 16 totalling 3,019 square foot are now let to Micronutrients, London E Cargo and City2City Courier each within a month of the completion of the refurbishment.

Existing AIPUT customers CH Robinson and Horizon International have both extended their existing leases at Blackthorne Point.

Unit 10, a single 8,665 square foot unit is the sole remaining unit to be let, with its refurbishment having recently been completed.

The new arrivals cite close proximity to the cargo terminals and the nearby motorway network as key elements in their decision to locate their operations at Blackthorne Point, which is adjacent to junction 14 of the M25.

Fraser Green, portfolio manager at Aberdeen Standard Investments says: “We continue to work with all our customers to provide high quality, flexible warehousing and industrial accommodation around Heathrow Airport, giving them the necessary tools to compete in the current economic climate and deliver best-in-class service levels to their customers.”

Jason Spencer Knox, regional director for CH Robinson says: “Blackthorne Point provides our business with excellent access to our customers.  The quality accommodation enables us to run a highly efficient operation out of our warehouse in Poyle, thereby providing the best possible service to our clients.”
