Opening a new cargo facility in South Carolina
Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) in South Carolina (USA) celebrated the opening of a USD 33 million air cargo facility which enhances its ability to handle domestic and international freight. In recent years air cargo volume and demand for freight services in the south east of the USA has increased dramatically.
President and CEO Dave Edwards: "This new facility allows GSP to take the region’s logistics infrastructure to new heights." The 10,200 sqm cargo facility and its 68,800 sqm apron allow the airport to accommodate up to three B747-800Fs simultaneously, tripling GSP's previous handling capacity.
Senator International, a German-based freight forwarder, will lease half of the facility to support its Senator Atlantic Bridge flights to Frankfurt-Hahn (HHN, Germany) with a twice-weekly connecting service to Johannesburg (South Africa). (ah)
