Heathrow team touch down in RainhamPosted: 19th Nov 2018 | Written by Katrina Gilbert
Havering is bidding to be one of the Heathrow Logistics Hubs by highlighting Rainham’s unrivalled connectivity to Heathrow by rail, road, river and air.
The proposed location is in the centre of the Riverside Opportunity area that stretches from Newham through to South Essex. Around 70 transport and logistics companies are already based in the area alongside a growing engineering sector presence and construction industry training resources.
A successful bid in an area already earmarked for industrial development will help support a growth in employment opportunities for local people and the establishment of a sustainable and innovative manufacturing centre.
