Manchester Airport’s World Freight Terminal has attracted two new firms and two customer renewals as it celebrates 30th anniversary.
MAG Property’s two new occupiers at the World Freight Terminal at Manchester Airport, Lime Supply and Posilan, have both recently agreed long-term leases.
Both Lime Supply and Posilan were attracted by the strategic location of the World Freight Terminal, which is adjacent to Junction 6 of the M56 motorway, providing seamless access to the import and export communities and air cargo operations, as well as to the 200+ passenger destinations and cargo network offered by airlines at Manchester Airport.
The new occupiers will be joined by two existing tenants who have extended their commitment in Building 308: MIQ Logistics and Evolution Time Critical, the world-leading specialist in emergency logistics.
Matt Burtinshaw, MD, Lime Supply, said: “In logistics, location is everything. Our new offices at Manchester World Freight Terminal are directly linked to the middle of the region’s motorway network, and adjacent to an international airport with global links.”
Steve Daniels, MD, Posilan, said: “Having clients across the North West means that Manchester Airport is a perfect central location at which to base our key staff. With the road connections we can be with clients quicker than before.”
Lime Supply, a cleaning logistics company, has moved into a 581 sq ft facility in Building 308, Avro Way. Posilan, which offers IT support to clients across Manchester and the North West, has taken up tenancy in a 456 sq ft facility in the same building.
Matthew Bird, Property Manager at MAG Property, said: “It’s pleasing to see more companies see the advantage of locating at an airport. Our focus at MAG Property is on providing the right kind of property and location to suit the individual needs of businesses and, in particular, those in industry sectors that benefit from airport locations. I know that our occupiers old and new will all benefit from being at one of the best connected locations in the North West.”
The news comes as Manchester Airport’s World Freight Terminal celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. By providing the facilities, experience and expertise to handle all types of air cargo 24/7, the World Freight Terminal has continued to expand to meet the needs of importers and exporters from across the UK.
Currently handling over 100,000 tonnes of import and export freight and mail a year, carried in both passenger aircraft and freight only aircraft, Manchester Airport’s World Freight Terminal has capacity for further growth.
