Sheffield firm’s expansion plans

Have your say

OWNERS of a Sheffield freight depot have joined forces with a second company and announced expansion plans.

Sheffield International Freight Terminal is currently 15,000 sq ft, providing exporters with a ‘regional facility’ to transport goods to overseas markets across the world.

But further plans are now being proposed to extend the terminal, on Grange Mill Lane, Blackburn Valley, by a further 25,000 sq ft.

The plans will create dozens of jobs.

Beth Barber-Atkinson, director at Sheffield International Freight Terminal, said: “SH-I-F-T is an exciting development for Sheffield City Region. It will make this area more self-sufficient and provide a direct route to overseas markets.”

SH-I-F-T is joining with another export company, 512 Sheffield Ltd, for the expansion venture.
