Manchester Airport
Managing Logistics Using Tech

Laing O’Rourke is delivering a £600m package of works to help Manchester Airport expand its facilities, including an extension to Terminal 2, a new car park, enhancing landscaping and road infrastructure, and two piers for arrivals and departures.

The Challenge

Maintaining business as usual at Manchester Airport during construction. All passenger flows, customer parking, airport operations and airport logistics activities must take priority to construction requirements.

Cue Voyage Control.

Voyage Control is a SaaS logistics provider whose cloud-based platform is being used by Laing O’Rourke for managing loading areas, coordinating all subcontractor deliveries, and providing supply chain insights and operations data, including CO2 emissions.

The Solution

Laing O’Rourke implemented Voyage Control for use across all subcontractor deliveries making it possible for the site team to restrict loading gate hours, direct traffic flow across the site, and monitor subcontractor delivery performance.


By using Voyage Control’s software as the operations control system, the team saves time and effort on not having to reschedule deliveries or duplicate data across multiple systems, all while maintaining operational excellence and keeping Manchester Airport running efficiently every day.

“It is essential to have a robust traffic delivery management plan, supported by a robust delivery management tool.”
