The Heathrow Logistics Hub EOI Bid

To support the regional supply chain to Heathrow it is proposed that 4 Logistics Hubs will be created in the UK. South Wales is ambitious to lead on one of the hubs. The expression of interest bid needs to be submitted by 31st July, and is being coordinated by the Head of Construction Sector at Welsh Government. We are keen to hear from any members who have experience of working in SME supply chains for bigger projects to enable us to support the South Wales EOI  Bid with practical examples of how to ensure the benefits of large investment trickle down to SME@s and not just the same Tier 1 contractors. If you would like to engage on this please email heather.myers@southwaleschamber.co.uk. The deadline for submission is 31st July so the sooner the better.
