Damco moves into new warehouse at Heathrow Airport
Damco has moved into a new 3,345 sqm energy-efficient warehouse at London’s Heathrow Airport as part of ongoing investment in its airfreight offering. The freight forwarder has moved its air freight operations into offices at the North Feltham trading estate, within three miles of Heathrow’s cargo terminal, to support a growing customer base of leading UK retailers.
“We are working with our clients closely to help reduce their CO2 footprint,” said Anthony Akerman, managing director, UK and Ireland, Damco. “By utilising our new facility, we will help to reduce CO2 on air shipments by consolidating clients’ cargo at origin in order to book on direct flights rather than use transhipment hubs. This allows us to kill volumes on the shipments, providing similar non-direct pricing for cargo that actually flies on a direct flight, reducing the CO2 footprint."
The new facility, which is open seven days a week, is located at Segro Central Spacewaye in the North Feltham trading estate. (mw)
