IAG Cargo plans £55 million premium freight facility


IAG CARGO has unveiled plans to build a new £55 million premium freight facility at its London Heathrow site in response to growing demand for high-value cargo services. The building will contain a dedicated Constant Climate Quality Centre, along with facilities for other premium freight.
IAG Cargo development chief Sarah Coulson said work on the new facility would begin in 2017, with opening expected in 2018, said London's Air Cargo News.
The new terminal, to be called New Premia, will double the size of the existing 10-year-old Premia building and will offer a larger dedicated constant climate centre for pharmaceuticals.
The centre will feature 11 truck docks, with four reserved for the constant climate centre, a new warehouse management system, and an additional 20 workstations for break and build.
There will also be an express storage facility that will be temperature controlled between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius.
Meanwhile, the constant climate centre included in the building will feature air locked areas with controlled temperatures of two to eight degrees Celsius and 15 and 25 degrees Celsius.
The current facility will be left unaffected during construction of the extension.
IAG Cargo CEO Drew Crawley said that it had been a tough year for air cargo, but demand for its premium products meant Premia was reaching capacity.
