WFS adds cargo capacity at Heathrow
Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has increased its facility footprint at London’s Heathrow Airport after a 30% growth in volumes in the past year.
WFS has signed a five-year lease on Building 578 in the airport’s cargo area, boosting its warehouse and office space by a further 2,508 sqm. The additional building, due to commence operations in October, features eight landside doors for cargo deliveries and collections, and a 6 m truck dock.
As well as caster deck storage for loaded pallets and containers, WFS also plans to install a 650 sqm area for ambient shipments and dedicated storage for temperature-controlled cargoes requiring a 2-8°C environment. Once the new facility opens, WFS will increase its total cargo handling space at the airport to nearly 32,516 sqm. (cj)
