Boosting Brisbane's air cargo business
A new ULD handling facility at Brisbane Airport, which is currently developing its "Airport Industrial Park" with over 100 hectares of land planned for industrial use, has been equipped with technical equipment by Lödige Industries.
The material handling system for the nearly 5,000 sqm facility was designed to meet increasing customer demand for perishables in the cold chain and to support the growth of general cargo in Queensland.
The facility will go live later this year. It includes electrically powered docks for loading and unloading cargos to different types of trucks, an intelligent transport system consisting of roller decks, castor decks and ball decks including ram protection. The equipment can handle temperature-sensitive perishable goods and complies with safety regulations. (ah)
