Manchester has the best international connectivity in the UK outside of London – a gateway to a myriad of national and global opportunities - and is the preferred distribution hub for world-renowned companies like Adidas, Argos, Kellogg’s, L’Oréal, and Next. At the heart of the UK’s motorway network, every major population hub from London to Edinburgh can be reached within a four-hour drive, with London being just two hours by train.
Manchester Airport is home to the World Freight Terminal, the largest in the UK outside London. The terminal handles more than 170,000 tonnes of cargo each year and provides dedicated freight services to the North American and Asian markets. The terminal includes more than 60,000 square metres of warehouse and office space; 100 freight forwarders and agents on site; and an EU-approved Border Inspection Post.
The Manchester Ship Canal and Port of Liverpool are two dynamic international trading centres forming a single 44-mile seaway to the heart of the UK and Britain’s richest cargo-creating and -consuming region outside London. For rail freight, there is Trafford Park Euroterminal which is part of plans to develop a multi-modal freight terminal which will double the capacity to enable container ships and 200,000 pallets of cargo to be handled at any one time.
