Arizona airport to house Mexican and US customs
go to site
The US state's governor, Doug Ducey, announced that the first-of-its-kind service, which will be operated out of Phoenix-Mesa gateway airport (AZA), will enable e-commerce companies, manufacturers and other commercial interests conducting business in Mexico and throughout Latin America to more efficiently and cost-effectively transport goods between countries, while ensuring proper inspections and safety controls.
At full build-out, the park could encompass between 325,000 - 465,000 sqm of office, warehouse, logistics/cargo, hospitality, and retail space. The project is expected to increase cargo flights out of AZA by 2,000 a year, eventually reaching 10,000 by 2036. (ah)
