Industrial units to let West Midlands benefit from being in the UK’s transportation ‘Golden Triangle’. The cities in this golden triangle – Birmingham, Coventry, Rugby and Leicester – are within 1 tacho drive of 80% of Britain’s population, making them an ideal location for manufacturing and distribution hubs. This is a huge advantage over London locations, which are not able to access the northern regions inside the drive time for an HGV driver’s regulation shift. This is why imported goods coming through the ports of Avonmouth and Felixstowe, which are not feasible to distribute from, are moved on to national distribution centres in the West Midlands – allowing for optimal distribution to the whole country.
Car manufacturers and companies that are in the supply chain of the likes of JLR take industrial units in the West Midlands, in order to be in close proximity to them, enjoy the excellent connectivity – including that of the golden triangle – and most importantly, tap into the region’s strong automotive industry talent pool.
