Manchester Airport’s World Freight Terminal Secures New Deals

The World Freight Terminal at Manchester Airport has welcomed two new companies and two customer renewals on the eve of its 30th anniversary.

MAG Property, the development arm of airport operator Manchester Airports Group, has signed long-term leases with cleaning supplies firm Lime Supply and IT services provider Posilan.

Lime Supply has taken 581 sq ft at Building 308 on Avro Way and Posilan has moved into a 456 sq ft facility within the same building.

Further, existing World Freight Terminal tenants MIQ Logistics and Evolution Time Critical have agreed to extend thee deals on their space at Building 308.

Lime Supply MD Matt Burtinshaw 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.”

Posilan MD Steve Daniels commented: “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.”

Matthew Bird, property manager of 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.”

Established 30 years ago, Manchester’s World Freight Terminal today handles more than 100,000 tonnes of import and export freight and mail annually, across both passenger aircraft and freight-only aircraft.
