Ashfield Land, the promoter and developer for Rail Central, the proposed Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI) and logistics hub near Northampton, has announced it is forming a strategic partnership with Gazeley to deliver this scheme.

Andrew Fisher, Managing Director of Ashfield Land, said: “In Gazeley, we are joining with one of the most experienced logistics development companies in Europe backed by one of the biggest logistics providers in the world and that is hugely exciting. Together, Ashfield Land and Gazeley will now take forward what is arguably the best location in the UK for rail-linked distribution development and deliver the vision for a next generation SRFI.”

Alex Verbeek, Managing Director UK at Gazeley, said: “The potential for Rail Central is evident and we are joining with Ashfield Land to put forward our proposal to develop and operate what will be a truly outstanding scheme. We have a wealth of experience delivering projects of this scale, both within Gazeley and as part of global provider GLP, and we look forward to bringing this to bear on this opportunity. This is quite simply one of the most investable and important SRFI sites in the UK today and we are delighted to be part of it.”
