Manston Airport is more commonly known as Kent International Airport and is located just near the 'up and coming' town of Margate where every hipster suddenly wants to live (including our lead developer!).
Because it is located on the Eastern tip of the UK, not too far from London, Folkestone and our 'friends' (wink wink) on the Continent it means it is well placed for logistics. Bibby and some other well know logistics providers are there offering 3PL services and Stowga have found pallet storage space for customers in the area in the past.
If ecommerce is your thing then there are also some fulfilment centres nearby, and also it wouldn't be crazy to think there's going to be more of this given those trendy startup types moving to Margate. In fact, Amazon has a fulfilment centre down there for exactly that reason.
