Kuehne + Nagel has started operating at Heathrow Airport’s 130,000 square foot Heathrow South Cargo Centre.
The facility includes warehouses and offices and is adjacent to the airport’s cargo area. Kuehne + Nagel says it offers security certification including TAPA, Regulated Agent and ETSF to support import, export and general operations. The facility is temperature controlled at 15 – 25 degrees centigrade and a two – eight degrees centigrade area with MHRA and GXP certification and provides capacity for further expansion.
Kuehne + Nagel says: “This major investment for Kuehne + Nagel demonstrates and reinforces our commitment to remain a market leading service provide in the UK airfreight market.”
It says relocating from Uxbridge to the cargo centre will make its operations more efficient and environmentally friendly. Heathrow South Cargo Centre is based on the A30 trunk road to the east of Heathrow’s perimeter road. The A30 provides access to the M25 motorway at junction 13 and to the M4 via the A312.
