Teesside Airport in the UK approved for handling of perishables

Teesside International Airport in the UK has been approved as a Border Control Point (BCP). This means it can handle perishable produce. The airport said it is now in talks with several “world-leading importers and airlines.” The development comes after the airport opened a £2.5m freight facility last year, which offers a 21,000 sq ft hangar with security screening technology, handling, freight forwarding, customs clearage, and storage.

Tees Valley mayor Ben Houchen said: “As one of the few Border Control Points in the country, we are now in a unique place to become a freight center for businesses across the North. “We’ve secured this vital designation in quick time – and this will allow the airport to access fruit, veg, and flower markets across the North of England and beyond.”
