SEGRO has let a 36,000 sq ft facility to cargo handler Swissport UK to grow its business and increase cargo handling at the UK’s hub airport, Heathrow.
The international 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.
Following a record year for cargo at Heathrow in 2017, volumes are currently up 1.6% a year to date at 981,690 tonnes. Consequently, there is greater demand for space from freight handlers to ensure they can efficiently service their customers.
Swissport UK has been a SEGRO customer for over 13 years and now leases a total of almost 185,000 sq ft of space across Heathrow and Stansted Airport.
Swissport UK will join Rolls Royce and DB Schenker at SEGRO Park Portal Heathrow, which is now fully let.
