As a net-exporting region, the North East is a convenient and effective base for businesses across industries such as manufacturing, machinery, logistics, chemical and pharmaceutical.

Boasting a full range of freight handling services, Teesside International Airport itself is an approved Regulated Agent – facilitating major global connectivity and acting as a gateway to key international markets. Scalability and flexibility are front of mind, with the airport not constrained in the same way as other major UK airports. This means services such as screening and declarations are much more efficient.

A new purpose-built, multimillion-pound facility provides the latest security screening technology, as well as handling and storage working with a network of freight forwarders and airline partners. The 21,000 sq ft hangar can be utilised alongside customs clearance and ad-hoc specialised charters, with the airport’s capabilities extending to both air and road freight. In fact, the area is also the UK’s fastest moving commuter road network, with major investment under way to further improve transport links.
