DP World to launch new air cargo logistics hub
DP World and Grupo Puntacana are planning to jointly develop a new air cargo logistics hub in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, boosting the country's position as the largest trade and logistics centre in the Caribbean.
The new site is being created through an agreement between DP World and the Punta Cana Free Trade Zone (PCFTZ), a company of Grupo Puntacana. It will include a logistics facility and infrastructure platforms capable of supporting multimodal air, land and sea cargo. Operations are expected to commence in late Q2/2023.
The facility will harness DP World's extensive Dominican Republic multimodal cargo management experience and world-class standards for handling logistics operations globally, as well as the high connectivity of the Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) to global distribution hubs. (cj)
