Leonardo to build UK helicopter logistics hub
Leonardo is building a new logistics hub for helicopter manufacturing in Yeovil, UK.
The company is partnering Kuehne+Nagel on a ten-year contract, as part of a collaborative project with Graftongate, to deliver the single-site logistics facility worth about £30 million ($42.3 million).
The facility will support the global fleet of Leonardo-made helicopters ‘through the warehousing of components and tooling in a state-of-the-art facility, which has sustainability at its core’, the company stated on 16 June.
Site development work will begin in August 2021 and Leonardo expects the facility to be completed in Q4 2022 before becoming fully operational in 2023.
