Cargo handler Swissport has signed a 10-year deal to continue leasing its 104,000 sq ft facility at SEGRO’s Heathrow Cargo Centre.
The Cargo Centre, which in total comprises 1.2m sq ft of space, offers direct access to the apron, “reducing waiting times and providing more certainty around deliveries”, SEGRO said.
Gareth Baker, regional director for Heathrow at SEGRO, said: “This long-term commitment ensures Swissport and its customers can continue to benefit from our well-positioned, airside cargo facilities at Heathrow Airport, which are integral to the efficient and reliable movement of goods.
“Swissport’s decision also reflects the importance of Heathrow Airport for UK exports and imports and the strong demand for the properties in our portfolio.”
Jason Gaskell chief operating officer, cargo, western Europe at Swissport, added: “Heathrow remains key to our UK cargo operations, our commitment to SEGRO’s Heathrow Cargo Centre will allow Swissport to strengthen its air cargo operations and service capabilities at Heathrow airport allowing our customers a stable platform for further growth”…
