World Freight Terminal

The World Freight Terminal at Manchester Airport is a purpose built site offering a combination of advantages to service providers in the air cargo and logistics supply chain.

By providing the facilities, experience and expertise to handle all types of air cargo 24/7, the World Freight Terminal has expanded to meet the needs of importers and exporters from across the UK.

  • Located adjacent to Junction 6 of the M56 motorway to offer direct access to the UK's main north/south motorway
  • A choice of five industry leading and independent cargo handling companies: Dnata, Servisair Cargo, Swissport, and WFS.
  • EU approved Border Inspection Post facilities
  • Chilled storage facilities
  • Capability to handle several wide-body freighter aircraft simultaneously
