Enhancing Hong Kong's e-commerce capacity
Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has signed an agreement with UPS to develop an express facility at Hong Kong airport. Expected to complete in 2028, the new hub will serve as UPS Hong Kong’s main site for processing and sorting imports, exports, and transshipments to and from Europe, the USA, and other parts of Asia.
The hub is designed for an annual handling capacity of close to 1 million t and will be built on a land parcel of 20,000 sqm with airside access near the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge.
AAHK CEO Fred Lam: "We have long embraced the growing importance of e-commerce in global trade and have been taking forward several strategic new facilities in order to capture the new opportunities and further sharpen our competitiveness in air cargo." (ah)
