Why Rent in London & South East?

Mileway in London and the South East

London is one of the most important business regions not just in the UK, but the world. It boasts some of the highest levels of e-commerce penetration in all of Europe, as well as being a financial powerhouse and hub of innovation and industry.

It’s also an incredibly challenging market to operate in, with enormous premiums on centrally located properties that make securing logistics space within the centre of the city a real challenge. As a result, the outskirts of London and wider South East region have become critical to the last mile sector, enabling the supply of goods and services in London. We provide a network of strategic locations that enable businesses to achieve a tactical edge and deliver faster, more efficiently and without huge expense.

Mileway’s portfolio of commercial properties for rent in London and the South East offers the best of both worlds, thanks to strategically located properties along with larger, more affordable sites further out in areas like Norwich, Ashford and Milton Keynes. Offering businesses that want to operate in the region the framework they need to do so.

London and the South East have great connections, transport and major hubs

It goes without saying that London's transport links are some of the best and most important in the UK. The 117-mile M25, also known as the London Orbital Motorway, encircles most of Greater London, offering direct access to a population of nearly 9 million people.

With more than 25 assets within the M25, Mileway’s London portfolio enables our customers to take full advantage of the easy transport links into the capital’s major aviation hubs, including London City Airport, Gatwick Airport, London Luton Airport, London Stansted Airport, London Southend Airport and of course, Heathrow Airport, where cargo numbers have quickly recovered to pre-pandemic levels. This is in addition to the Port of London – one of the UK’s largest and most important ports.

Further afield, the broader South East has superb road and rail networks, allowing for rapid journeys into London from outside the M25. The South East’s road network in particular is the most-used in the country, and has seen large-scale investment to support that.

Why here, and why Mileway?

As one of the most sophisticated e-commerce markets in the world, consumers within this region expect fast delivery times and excellent service. Mileway's last mile network in the city, as well as the surrounding region, empowers businesses to meet those expectations, with around 9 million square feet of space spread across more than 150 locations.

In addition to constantly expanding our portfolio and providing businesses with new opportunities, we’re making it a priority to meet the growing need for last mile logistics spaces that support critical ESG initiatives. Sustainability in particular is a core focus area, and we’re accommodating rising numbers of electric vehicles with dedicated storage and charging facilities while also refurbishing our warehouses to have a reduced environmental impact.

We also know how important it is for businesses in the region to have flexibility as they grow, which is why access to the wider Mileway network of industrial units and warehouse spaces across the South East and the UK as a whole is so valuable when it comes to expansion.
