From this summer, Onward Holdings Ltd, will be supplying much-needed, quality HGV contract parking spaces within 2.5 miles of junction 31 of the M62 in Yorkshire – one of the UK’s most sought-after distribution and manufacturing locations. This represents a golden opportunity for fleet operators requiring a northern base for their vehicles.
This major new service offered by Onward Holdings, an established supplier of warehousing in the north of England, will significantly boost the options for haulage companies needing a cost-effective base. The location is ideally placed for fleet operators to take advantage of the recent multi-million pound investment promised by Associated British Ports in the Port of Hull – sure to increase business in the area, particularly in the logistics sector. The large capacity of the site is expected to appeal to HGV fleet operators and owner-drivers who need a regular facility to store their vehicles securely overnight or for a variable amount of time. The site has space for a sizable number of HGVs with further capacity expected in the future. Vehicle safety is paramount at the site which is equipped with electronic gates, CCTV cameras and a full remote monitoring system.
Haulage operators will be delighted to learn that various contract options are available to them, ranging from monthly to discounted annual contracts. This flexibility will be a great boon for those companies that are bound by seasonal variances in their workload and may not to wish to commit themselves to long-term contracts.
Onward Holdings’ managing director, Neil Storey, said: “Many businesses are looking to have their fleets close to key routes in order to cut transportation time and costs. We aim to rescue them from the current shortage of responsible, highly-secure HGV parking in the area. We are offering flexible, competitively priced terms which should help companies tap more easily into the improving economic situation in the north.”
Set in one of the most important warehouse and distribution locations, the site offers parking close to many national and international online businesses as well as being within a short distance of the M62 with links to other major motorway networks. It could even become the permanent operating base for fleet operators with long term vision. Onward Holdings says it has already had enquiries from businesses in North Yorkshire and the south east of England who are looking to develop or expand in the north of England. Increasing demand from third party logistics providers has seen its warehouses being snapped up quickly and it is likely that the parking will follow suit.
Family-run Onward Holdings specialises in operating highly competitively-priced industrial warehousing, in the north of England as well as retail parks and now secure, HGV parking.
