Shared user hub

April 16, 2013

DHL Supply Chain is investing £8.8m in a shared user hub at Heathrow to meet the end-of-route return catering requirements on long haul flights. The company has just won some £40m of additional airline catering contracts.   The site will open early next year alongside DHL’s existing food preparation facility at the Heathrow Flight Assembly Centre. It will provide procurement and sourcing services, menu development, food assembly and final mile delivery to aircraft, as well as an integrated specialist-recycling centre.
