Riga: Baltic cargo hub coming up

Latvia’s national airline Airbaltic is teaming up with UPB Nams, a construction company, to build a Baltic cargo hub at RIX Riga Airport. It will be the largest dedicated air cargo handling centre in the Baltics, confirming Riga airport's position as a major air cargo hub.


The new facility will be equipped with a semi-automatic material handling system (MHS), including a mail sorter. These advancements will significantly improve handling efficiency for both belly cargo and dedicated cargo freighter aircraft.


The Baltic cargo hub will have full special cargo handling capabilities with dedicated temperature-controlled rooms for pharmaceuticals and perishables, premises for dangerous goods, live animals, and valuable shipments. (cj)
