The move is part of a joint approach to develop Qatar Airways Cargo’s global network handling partnership programme.  Menzies will be enhancing its delivery and collection process for the forwarding and trucking community as part of the agreement. They also plan to invest in special product handling capabilities with a key focus on pharmaceutical and temperature-controlled commodities.

 

Qatar Airways Cargo will also benefit from a dedicated reception area and operations office as well as bespoke office accommodation and gym for all employees.  Warehouse capacity for the handling of passenger and freighter cargo will exceed 7000 square meters, the largest dedicated warehouse capacity solution ever provided by Menzies at Heathrow.

Qatar Airways Cargo will move into Menzies’ cargo facilities from 1st September 2020.

Robert Fordree, Menzies Aviation Executive Vice President, Cargo, said: “This award is the result of a close working relationship in a number of global locations which has enabled us to develop a deep understanding of the cargo carrier’s requirements. It shows our renewed focus on our global cargo business and a clear strategy to partner with global carriers at multiple locations is beginning to deliver results.

 

With Qatar Airways Cargo moving back to an on-airport facility at London Heathrow, we see longer term benefits in working closely with the airport to firstly, enhance the Shoreham Road cargo access point and ultimately, to move into their proposed new purpose built, on-airport, cargo infrastructure.”
