Heathrow announces Logistics Hubs longlist

Heathrow has announced the next step in building its new runway by revealing the sixty-five longlisted sites in the running to be selected as expansion Logistics Hubs, which will help ensure that businesses across the UK can form part of the airport’s supply chain for expansion.

The unveiling of the longlisted Logistics Hubs, another delivery milestone for the airport, follows a commitment made by Heathrow to shake-up the UK construction industry by using expansion to revolutionise the way Britain builds major infrastructure.

The sixty-five potential sites have been chosen from an initial 121 applications. One – Wincanton, in Greenford, is in West Lonfon.

Once finalised, the final four selected locations will pre-assemble components of the expanded airport before transporting them in consolidated loads to Heathrow, playing a key role in supporting expansion’s efficient delivery.

Heathrow expansion is the first major infrastructure project in the UK to pioneer the large-scale use of logistics hubs, and Britain’s new runway will create jobs in every corner of the UK. The Hubs will also create a legacy of construction excellence in the UK for future generations.

The Logistics Hubs also tie directly into Heathrow’s commitments on sustainability, by reducing emissions through transporting assembled components to site in fewer lorries. This approach will help deliver expansion faster, more affordably and will minimise impact on local communities.

Ahead of the Supplier Awards this evening, Heathrow Chairman Lord Deighton said: “As the UK leaves the EU, Heathrow is an essential infrastructure project that will ensure Britain remains an open trading nation.

“As part of that, Heathrow’s third runway will rely on talent from all over Britain helping to create a national asset for generations to come. This means new procurement opportunities for businesses in every region, helping drive growth and investment into local communities in all corners of this country. Our aim, to harness the skills we need through long-term projects such as the Logistics Hubs and Business Summits, will drive jobs and investment leaving a legacy of increased productivity for the construction sector. The third runway is not a London centric project – it is one we are opening up to the whole of the UK, asking for its skills and expertise to help build an asset this country so desperately needs to safeguard its future prosperity.”

Civil Engineering Contractors Association chief executive Alasdair Reisner added: “We are keen that the whole of the UK benefits from the expansion of Heathrow. We see huge potential for the logistics hubs to stimulate the growth of new industrial heartlands across the country, manufacturing and assembling the high-quality components used by contractors to build world class new facilities for Heathrow”
