Swissport leases 36,000 sq ft facility from SEGRO at Heathrow


SEGRO has let a 36,000 square foot facility to Swissport UK, allowing the cargo handler increase its business at Heathrow Airport.

The aviation services company, which provides airport ground and cargo handling services, has signed a 10-year lease at Unit 1 SEGRO Park Portal Heathrow, a Grade A modern warehouse facility that also includes office space.

Swissport UK has been a SEGRO customer for over 13 years and now leases a total of almost 185,000 square foot of space across Heathrow and Stansted Airport.

SEGRO Park Portal Heathrow is in a prime position with direct access to the Southern Perimeter Road and close to SEGRO’s cargo terminal.

The Portal is well connected with Junction 14 of the M25 within three miles to the west giving swift access to the UK’s motorway network.

SEGRO business unit director for Greater London, Alan Holland says: “We are pleased to provide additional space for one of our long-standing customers that will enable them to effectively grow their business in a highly competitive industry.

“Levels of cargo at Heathrow will continue to increase in the near-term future, and following the parliamentary vote for an additional runway, freight capacity is expected to double, so it’s vital for our customers to have the space to respond to current and future demand.”
