Swissport launches cargo operations in Australia
Swissport International, a global provider of airport ground services and air cargo handling, is complementing its offering in Australia with air cargo handling. The launch of the new business line at Sydney Airport (SYD) last month is part of Swissport's overall growth strategy in the region, following the acquisition of the Australian airport ground handler Aerocare in 2018.
Swissport has been successfully driving this dual strategy in a global network of currently 117 air cargo centres and processed 4.8 million t of cargo in 2022.
The addition of air cargo operations in Australia will help strengthen trade routes between Australia and Asia. Swissport’s first cargo customers in Australia - Vietjet and Batik Air – will now be able to expedite imports to and exports from Australia via their Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) gateways to markets in Asia via Vietnam.
