East Midlands Airport Area
OUR GATEWAY TO THE WORLD
East Midlands Airport is recognised as a nationally important asset for freight and logistics.
The airport is the UK’s most important for dedicated cargo flights. It handles 1,000 tonnes a day and facilitates approximately £40bn of trade to and from the UK and £11bn of non-EU imports and exports each year.
It has already witnessed significant growth with DHL Express and UPS investing, between them, over £200m in recent years.
The airport provides a stimulus for wider regional growth. To the north of the airfield, SEGRO is currently developing the East Midlands Gateway site which will see Amazon, Shop Direct, Nestlé and Kuehne Nagel take space for their logistics operations.
