Heathrow launch UK-wide search for Logistics Hubs
In October 2016 the Government announced the expansion of Heathrow Airport. An expanded Heathrow will double the airport’s cargo capacity and increase the number of domestic connections, boosting Britain’s exporters and ensuring every region and nation of the UK can get to global markets. With up to 40 more long haul destinations, the project will make Britain the best-connected country in the world.
Heathrow has committed to maximising opportunities for British businesses, including those in Norfolk, of all sizes who could benefit from being involved in the building one of the largest privately-funded infrastructure projects in Europe.
They are inviting local business communities to showcase why their area is suitable to host one of four new logistics hubs. Suitable locations will have good connectivity, access to a relevant supply chain and strong local skills. Heathrow has produced a document explaining what they want to achieve and how businesses can get involved.
Interested applicants should visit https://procurement.heathrow.com to register their interest and complete an Expression of Interest questionnaire before 31st July 2017. All applications will be considered by Heathrow and a list of potential sites is expected to be announced later this year.
