DHL Air UK Leases Warehouse for MRO Operations at East Midlands Airport’s Air Cargo Centre

Published: Tuesday, January 9, 2024

DHL Air UK has established an MRO-focused warehouse facility at East Midlands Airport’s Air Cargo Centre to strengthen its UK operations.

The cargo airline, which is based at the airport and already operates there, has leased a unit at the Centre for approximately five years, said FHP Property Consultants in a press release.

Peter Molloy, regional commercial manager for DHL, commented: “East Midlands Airport is home to the UK’s largest dedicated cargo operation, and DHL already occupy some 500,000 sq ft across the airport.

“The new unit at Air Cargo Centre will be predominantly used for repairs and maintenance, keeping this separate to our parcel hub.”

The Air Cargo Centre is located off Beverley Road, within the East Midlands Airport campus.  The estate comprises 23 industrial/warehouse units with a total floor area of some 200,000 sq ft.

DHL Air UK serves the DHL Group’s parcel and express network in Europe.

Last month, DHL Express UK announced a £16m investment in electric ground service vehicles and infrastructure at East Midlands Airport.
