Aberdeen International Airport is an international airport, located at Dyce, a suburb of Aberdeen, approximately 5 miles (9.3 km; 5.8 mi) northwest of Aberdeen city centre. A total of nearly 3.5 million passengers used the airport in 2015, a fall of 6.8% compared with 2014. That is largely due to the city's fortunes being tied to local oil and gas industry which experienced decline over that period.

Nearby is Aberdeen Harbour - a world class port annually handling around 8,000 vessel arrivals and around five million tonnes of cargo. With versatile facilities, competitive charges and diversity of traffic, it serves Scotland's third city and an extensive hinterland.

There are surprisingly few warehouses available around Aberdeen. There is a cluster of sites on the outskirts, mainly operated by well-known warehousing and logistics firms specialising in bulk pallet storage.

Further afield there are a number of haulage firms inland south on the A90 or north on the A96.
