Brussels Airport's cargo zone has been developing steadily in recent years. To meet the growing demand for storage and handling space, and given the need to modernize several buildings, Brussels Airport will invest 70 million euros over the next three years to redevelop a large area located in the heart of the cargo activities. The works in this zone will start later this week.
The cargo area at Brussels Airport has been seeing new developments in recent years and in the coming months and years the next step will be taken. The redevelopment of the central area of the cargo zone and the development of new cargo buildings and offices on the airport site will allow the airport to welcome new partners and offer the new and current partners warehouses and offices that are larger, more efficient, more modern and more sustainable.
“Accelerating the development of the cargo zone is one of the priorities within the new strategy of Brussels Airport.," points out Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company. “We want to further strengthen our position as a global cargo hub and develop the cargo area in a sustainable way in order to offer our logistics partners the most efficient infrastructure and operational processes.”
“Our cargo activities are growing steadily and our cargo area is constantly developing.” continues Arnaud Feist. “The demand from current and future partners for storage and handling capacity is very high. Even if the cargo area of Brussels Airport is already very large, it is important to rethink and reorganise the spaces for more efficiency, but also and especially to modernise them. Sustainability plays a key role in this modernisation. Brussels Airport wants to improve the energy efficiency of its entire infrastructure, a strategy that applies far beyond the cargo area.”
