Amazing aerial views of giant new £90m warehouse
These stunning aerial photos show the sheer size of the huge new 11.5-acre Uniserve Mega Distribution Centre, on the edge of the Port of Felixstowe. The GBP90million warehouse is the size of six football pitches, and will be able to handle more than 100 lorries at loading bays at once.

Uniserve is currently aiming to recruit warehouse operatives, forklift truck drivers and very narrow aisle (VNA) forklift truck drivers.

A spokesperson for Uniserve said: “We are incredibly proud of the investment Uniserve is making in the Felixstowe Mega DC, a development that will make port-centric logistics at scale a reality at the UK’s largest container port for the first time ever.

“More than that, though, the FMDC is an investment in the local area – creating hundreds of new jobs in and around Felixstowe at a time when job security is a real worry for many families.

The ambient and freezer distribution centre will include 750,000 sq ft of warehousing, and the company says its scale will reduce costs and complexity for port users and provide quicker access to goods To give more idea of its size, its walls are 400 metres long by 120 metres wide and 21 metres high. Originally, there were plans for it to be 40 metres high, but this was scaled down during the planning process.

It will include four mezzanine floors and advanced electrical mechanical handling equipment.
Uniserve has previously said there “will be a large freezer store component (which is a major expansion for our Felixstowe-based Seafast business) together with general portcentric warehouse operations”.
