AMI goes for independence

[ March 8, 2013   //   ]

Airfreight wholesaler Air Menzies International (AMI) has become self-handling in Manchester after moving into a dedicated 8000 sq ft facility at Manchester Airport’s World Cargo Centre.

The new base will improve processing times for customer delivery vehicles and cargo received at AMI Manchester for flights departing from London Heathrow can now meet a wider range of next day services, thanks to AMI’s use of scheduled nightly road feeders operated by airfreight trucking specialist Ware Transport..

The refurbished on-airport facility incorporates new security systems and X-ray scanning equipment.

AMI regional manager Nova Barker said: “AMI Manchester is becoming an increasingly important element in our UK operations, and we are very pleased that we can now extend similar levels of service to our north of England and Scottish customers, as those for which we are known in the south.”

AMI Manchester generates 22% of all the company’s UK bookings and 80% of this traffic uses flights from Manchester. Traffic through AMI’s northern operation has increased by 15% in the past six months.
