APL Logistics relocates UK office to Here East
We are delighted to announce that APL Logistics will be relocating its UK office to our award-winning campus located in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The global supply chain services provider will be occupying 8,644 sq. ft. in the former Press Centre alongside companies such as Neopost, LC2 and Plexal. The innovation centre, Plexal, is the base for over 100 companies, including the electric scooter company Bird, and the government-funded London Office for Rapid Cybersecurity Advancement (LORCA).
APL Logistics designs and operates smart globally integrated supply chains, combining origin and destination logistics solutions with transportation services across all modes and regions of the world. The company has a long and distinguished history as an innovator in logistics and technology solutions. In addition, they work across different sectors, specialising in the automotive, retail, industrials and consumer businesses. Many of these sectors are represented at Here East, making the company a natural fit to our ever-growing campus ecosystem.
As the most successful post-Olympic transformation of an International Press and Broadcast Centre in the world, we are home to a curated community of tenants, spanning start-ups, global corporates, creative businesses and academic institutions. Through this approach to collaborative working, Here East is now referenced globally as one of the best examples of creating a new technology and innovation ecosystem: a supercampus.
"Our aim for Here East has always been to provide a space where large global businesses are able to work alongside and collaborate with academic institutions and scale-ups. APL Logistics’ decision to join our tech-focused campus shows their dedication to innovation and interest in collaborating with like-minded companies. This makes them the perfect fit for Here East and we look forward to welcoming them."
-Gavin Poole, CEO of Here East
"The move to Here East marks an exciting milestone for APL Logistics. The business is constantly growing and being in the logistics industry coupled with provision of technology solutions meant that moving to Here East was a natural fit for us. The ability to access and be part of the cross-sector innovation at Here East will allow us to continue to innovate and expand our business. We are looking forward to becoming part of the campus in the near future."
