Authorities at the Warsaw Chopin Airport (Poland) announced they have expanded and upgraded the airport’s cargo handling operations.
Thanks to an increase in the airport’s cargo intake, in the first 11 months of 2019, authorities decided on an upgrade, to handle the new volume.
The new cargo terminal at Warsaw Airport comes with 2,860 sqm of warehousing space, which includes a cold storage facility and separate halls for live animals, valuables and radioactive shipments. Furthermore, the new cargo terminal has enough office space to be available for rent to third parties.
Official data shows that 89,000 tonnes of air freight passed through Warsaw Airport between January-November 2019, at an increase of 4.9% compared to the same period of 2018.
One of the country’s largest cargo handling agents, Welcome Airport Services, inaugurated the airport’s new facility.
The company has six locations across Poland, which employ 2,200 people.
