Centre set up specifically to serve the needs of customers in the fresh produce sector and in particular to the farmed fish industry.

In just over two weeks’ time on 30th March, DB Schenker Logistics UK will open their new perishables handling facility within their perfectly located airfreight hub at London Heathrow.

The 11,000 square foot facility has a number of features that will improve handling processes, adding efficiency and value to their perishables customers supply chain.

The temperature-controlled facility, has cross-dock capability, eliminates contamination exposure, reduced manual handling and will be operational 24/7, by our dedicated perishables team.

“Efficiency is of paramount importance for perishables customers”, says Helgi Ingolfsson, CEO of DB Schenker Logistics in the UK.

“The significant investment we have made is not only part of our airfreight strategy, but a result of from feedback from clients and valuing their needs from a logistics provider in this sector.”

Ingolfsson adds: “I have high hopes for this ultra-modern facility as an addition to our already existing airfreight hub. This will help us to become one of the premier logistics services providers in this sector and offer many benefits and integrated solutions for our customers supply chain.”
