Would like to add this stock which has a focus on last mile delivery in urban areas, something I think will be only growing!
Hey @Mcmike, this was added to your app today:
Whats last mile delivery? Pls
Think deliveroo collecting from a restaurant and delivering to a customer for that ‘last mile’ or a better example might be bulk delivery of parcels to a parcel hub for delivery to flats/offices by much more sustainable modes (electric bike or similar) - that’s my understanding anyway!
U never said the stock?
Well there is the stock which is the subject of this thread - £LMP - Londonmetric Property. They have previously acquired warehouses suitable for last-mile companies such as DPD - see https://www.londonmetric.com/sites/london-metric/files/press-release/Pr-23-11-2016.pdf
LMP have also moved into the provision of ‘dark kitchens’ which are kitchen spaces taken up by restaurant operators who then use last mile delivery companies to deliver food - a good example is Deliveroo (£ROO) - LondonMetric buys two warehouses for £13.5m to become dark kitchens - Sharecast.com
Start with some research on these two and see what you think before investing. There is also the Logistics Category on FT
LondonMetric are currently raising a new funding round on the PrimaryBid app - scheduled to close the fund raising within the next 3 hours.
Anyone know why this has dropped so heavily this week? Can’t find any rationale aside from the new acquisition but that was late April.
