Heathrow Airport

Heathrow’s ambition is to be one of Europe’s best airports for cargo - timely, predictable and easy to do business with.

As Britain’s largest port by value, we connect British business to global markets:

  • 30% of all UK exports by value outside the EU
  • 70% of all UK air-cargo trade
  • 86% of all UK bellyhold freight (more than Frankfurt and Amsterdam combined)

From Heathrow, 95% of the global economy is within reach of a direct flight. We're also uniquely placed as a transatlantic and European gateway. No other airport is better placed to connect UK exporters to the world and help the UK achieve its target of £1 trillion exports by 2020.

We’re investing millions to revolutionise our cargo hub, reduce throughput times and improve facilities. We’re also making Heathrow cargo more sustainable, with a more efficient operation using fewer cargo vehicles running on alternative fuels. 

Our cargo strategy will lift freight volumes to 3 million tonnes a year by 2040 through improved service and increased capacity from a third runway:

  • Work closely with the cargo community through engagement and discussion
  • Halve current cargo throughput times, make them more predictable, and reduce costs
  • Grow cargo capacity at the airport to generate additional cargo volumes for our airline partners
  • Be 100% e-freight compliant, to reduce waste, cost and delays
  • Provide a safe working environment
  • Minimise the environmental impact of our cargo operation
