Thai Cargo signs up WFS for five years in UK and Ireland

Thai Cargo has awarded Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) a five-year cargo handling contract for the UK and Ireland market.
Effective from 1 September, WFS will provide handling for Thai’s double-daily Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 flights from London Heathrow to Bangkok, as well as regional cargo handling across its UK and Ireland stations and its trucking network connecting each airport location.
This is a new contract, rather than the extension of existing of an existing deal.
The Thai Cargo team in the UK and Ireland will also relocate to WFS’s Building 550 in the World Cargo Centre at Heathrow, where the freight carrier will have a dedicated export facility with direct airside access.
The location is, WFS noted, also conveniently situated adjacent to the UK Border Inspection Post (BIP) at Heathrow.
Patrick Roberts, vice president UK & Ireland for WFS, observed: “Our ability to provide a dedicated location at Heathrow alongside our stations and trucking network connecting all the major cargo points of the UK and Ireland all contributed to our successful tender for this contract.
“This gives us further opportunity to enhance our growing relationship with Thai Cargo at another major airport gateway in Europe and we look forward to providing the highest quality standards of service, safety and security for THAI and its customers.”
