Swissport International has opened a new air cargo terminal in the north-east of Spain at Zaragoza Airport (ZAZ).
Spanning 4,000sqm, the new facility has 14 truck docks for fast pick-up and delivery of air freight.
With the opening of this new warehouse, Swissport’s cargo network now covers five Spanish airports (Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga, Valencia and Zaragoza).
The new cargo terminal opened its doors in October 2023 and Swissport states it gives them an attractive growth platform at one of Spain’s most vital cargo airports.
Franck Serano, cargo director of Swissport Spain, said: “The expansion of our Spanish cargo network is a direct response to the growing demand for air cargo handling capacity.
“We are proud to support the success of the airport and to contribute to its future growth and that of the airlines operating at this important cargo hub.”
Swissport has been a prominent player in Zaragoza since 2015, providing passenger services and ramp handling to global airlines flying to the region.
With its latest investment, Swissport states that it not only adds air cargo handling to its service portfolio at the airport, but also solidifies its leading market position in the air cargo handling sector in Spain.
Dirk Goovaerts, chief executive Continental Europe, Middle East, and Africa, and global cargo chair of Swissport, said: “The opening of our new cargo terminal at Zaragoza Airport underlines Swissport’s strategic commitment to further grow our air cargo services globally.
“By implementing innovative technologies such as self-service cargo kiosks, door management systems, slot booking and Bluetooth ULD tracking at more and more locations, Swissport is adding customer value and continuously enhancing operational efficiency in air cargo handling.”
