commerce and industry place holder

Yorkshire’s Doncaster Sheffield Airport is celebrating a record breaking year for cargo as 2015 saw the most freight handled since the airport opened.

The airport has also seen an increase in large movements including B747s, AN225 and AN124s.

Dayle Hauxwell, cargo manager for Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: “We are delighted to say that 2015 was officially our busiest year for cargo ever.

“Over the last 12 months, the airport and its partners have taken a significant step forward in demonstrating our capability to the market as the only sensible choice for cargo in the UK.

‘We have been building a reputation based on efficiency and delivering bespoke solutions for each client, this is proving to be a very powerful combination and customers are choosing Doncaster Sheffield Airport on merit.

“With our new motorway link road opening imminently, our customers are looking forward to taking advantage of reduced trucking times to and from the airport.

“We’re delighted with the progress we are making towards our long term ambition of establishing Doncaster Sheffield as the obvious choice for cargo in the UK and it is already looking like we will continue to grow strongly in the year ahead.”

Doncaster Sheffield Airport, through operator Anglo World Cargo, has managed consignments across the globe, including Nepal, Kenya, Venezuela, USA and key European destinations such as Greece and France.

The growth is continued evidence that the Airport’s cargo terminal is enhancing its reputation around the world.

Gary Winterman, managing director of Anglo World Cargo, added: “This is a fantastic result for the airport and the cargo handling team.

“It is clear that more and more companies are looking at Doncaster Sheffield Airport as the solution to their air cargo needs, which is great news for the airport and the regional economy.

“We have continued to build some excellent relationships with our clients over the last year and we’re excited about what 2016 will bring.”

Doncaster Sheffield Airport’s Cargo Terminal consists of 12,000sqft of operational space and has a full range of equipment and facilities capable of handling any aircraft.

This, coupled with the airport’s 2,893m runway, means through Anglo World Cargo, it has the ability to handle all aspects of airfreight from the smallest parcel to bespoke charters of large cargo aircraft, such as the Antonov-225s.
