Norbert wins contracts at Heathrow


Norbert Dentressangle has won a number of new contracts at its handling centre at Heathrow Airport, securing business with companies including vegetable suppliers Barfoots and Sandfields, and freight forwarders Morgan Air and Jones Dooly since the end of 2009.

The facility was established ten years ago as a perishables handling centre to serve Norbert’s contract with British Airways World Cargo.

Activities within the centre include on-site customs clearance, container unloading, sorting of consignments to individual customer orders, blast cooling, storage and stock control in segregated cold stores, quality control inspection and shelf life testing, labelling and order picking, store tray assembly and onward distribution to retailers’ RDCs.

The company also operates an EU and DEFRA approved border inspection Post for seafood, meat and dairy products requiring health inspection on arrival.
