SEGRO and Aviva Investors, through their joint venture agreement, Airport Property Partnership (APP), announced that they have leased an additional unit of 26,705 ft² (approx. 2,574 m²) to ASC Cargo Handling. The airside unit is on the Sandringham Road, at the Heathrow Cargo Centre.
ASC Cargo Handling has occupied circa 38,100 ft² (approx. 3,540 m²) at the Heathrow Cargo Centre since 2010. The Heathrow Cargo Centre is the airport’s primary cargo facility and offers companies which are based there both airside and landside access. APP is unique in being the only landlord at Heathrow to provide businesses with direct airside access.
ASC Cargo Handling handles a high volume of cargo at Heathrow for a number of customers. Its services include door-to-door freight handling and warehousing for a wide variety of cargo intended for either import or export. The successful expansion of their business operations has now led to them taking this adjoining unit.
The Heathrow Cargo Centre totals 1.2 million ft² (approx. 11,484 m²), and other customers located there include DHL, Worldwide Flight Services, Air France, Air Canada and Dnata.
