DAMCO opens new Heathrow site

[ March 19, 2020   //   ]

AP Moller Group’s forwarding arm DAMCO has moved its airfreight operations into a new 36,000sq ft warehouse at Heathrow Airport.

The bonded facility ’s has a Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating of Excellent and a Grade A Energy Performance Certificate.

Managing director, UK and Ireland, Anthony Akerman, said: “By utilising our new facility, we will help to reduce CO2 on air shipments by consolidating clients’ cargo at origin in order to book on direct flights rather than use transhipment hubs. This  allows us to kill volumes on the shipments, providing similar non-direct pricing for cargo that actually flies on a direct flight, reducing the CO2 footprint.”

It is located at SEGRO Central Spacewaye in the North Feltham Trading Estate.
