A prime location at the heart of the Golden Triangle

Northamptonshire is known across the industry as the ‘Golden Triangle of Logistics’. This includes the major logistics parks such as DIRFT, Swan Valley, Brackmills Industrial Estate, Prologis Park, Pineham and many more.

The prime location benefits from the major road networks running throughout this central point, including the M1, A14 and M6, plus cross-country routes. Such routes provide quick access into Birmingham and London, plus towns and cities across mainland UK. No matter the direction your goods need to travel in, logistics from here is possible, often on a same or next day basis.

For goods arriving or departing via air-freight, Birmingham, East Midlands and London airports are all within a short distance of Northamptonshire. Therefore, firms are able to deliver/collect from airports easily.
