Why Rent in the Midlands?

Mileway in the Midlands

The Midlands is an engine for growth. With a population of over 10 million people - the second-largest of any region in the UK - it generates roughly 13% of the UK economy, which works out to more than £230 billion in Gross Value Added (GVA).

In a highly populated and powerful market like the Midlands, meeting growing e-commerce demand and facilitating faster delivery times are critical. To help, Mileway has a diverse portfolio of last mile commercial properties for rent strategically located in and around the Midlands’ major cities, particularly the hubs of Birmingham and Coventry. With excellent connectivity through close proximity to critical transport links, our industrial units and warehouse spaces shorten the last mile, allowing businesses to perform at their very best.

The Midlands has great connections, transport and major hubs

A vast majority of the so-called 'golden triangle of logistics' sits within the Midlands. Known for its high density of distribution facilities and as the home of the biggest names in retail, the triangle stretches from Northamptonshire up to Nottingham, and west to Tamworth.

It also includes the M1, M6 and M42 – key transport routes that offer Midlands-based businesses access to 90% of the UK’s population within a four-hour drive.

Businesses in the Midlands also enjoy easy access to the region’s ports, railways and airports. These include East Midlands Airport – the UK’s second-busiest airport in terms of freight – as well as the Port of Grimsby which handles a wide range of cargoes and is one of the UK’s most important automotive ports.

Why here, and why Mileway?

In addition to its manufacturing and automotive heritage, the Midlands is home to some of the fastest-growing cities in the country. This presents a host of new opportunities in the region as e-commerce continues to expand its reach.

With excellent transport links and a diverse last mile portfolio to take advantage of, we support supply chains that deliver fast and meet rising demand.
