Great Yorkshire Way

Providing a direct connection between Doncaster Sheffield Airport, the iPort Doncaster ‘inland port’ and the UK’s motorway network, the Great Yorkshire Way is a major catalyst for the further development of Doncaster as one of the UK’s leading logistics hubs.

The Great Yorkshire Way has:

  • Linked Doncaster Sheffield Airport and the iPort Doncaster inland port directly to the UK’s motorway network at Junction 3 of the M18.
  • Established sites on the route, including Robin Hood Airport Business Park and iPort Doncaster as prime locations for logistics and distribution companies.
  • Reduced journey times significantly, for both freight and passengers, between Doncaster Sheffield’s Airport’s catchment area and the airport, including a drive time of only 25 minutes to the centre of Sheffield – England’s fourth largest city.
  • Connected Doncaster Sheffield Airport with Doncaster International Railport and iPort Doncaster, creating a truly integrated multimodal freight proposition for logistics, warehousing and distribution companies.
  • Stimulated the on-going growth and development of Doncaster Sheffield Airport, to establish it firmly as the primary airport for Sheffield City Region and the surrounding area.

“The direct motorway link cut journey times and opened up a bigger catchment area. The road has resulted in…more destinations, more business links and overall a stronger economy”.

Michael Cawley, Deputy CEO, Ryanair.

Tackling the driver shortage issue and keeping the UK moving

15 September 2017

RECRUITING HGV drivers is an ongoing issue in the UK logistics sector, there are lots of roles available but a lack of trained people to fill them. At Logistics and Distribution Group we could easily employ an extra 10/ 15 drivers per day and we know that we are not alone.
