Boosting cargo capacity by over 50%

Global air and travel services provider Dnata will boost its cargo handling capacity by over 50% at Zurich airport (ZRH) in Switzerland, in response to continued solid demand for its services in this area.


Having signed a lease agreement with the airport authority, the company is planning to operate its new 9,500 sqm advanced warehouse facility as the sole occupant. Construction has already begun and is scheduled to be completed by 2027.


The new ‘Rächtenwisen’ warehouse will provide 20 docking ramps for trucks and separate areas for handling import and export processes, as well as hazardous goods. It will also include temperature-controlled areas for sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals and other perishable items.


In line with Dnata’s group target of reducing its global carbon emissions and waste to landfill by 50% by 2030, the airport also plans to install solar PV panels to the roof of the landside building. (cj)
