Alha Group, the Italian airfreight handling and trucking services provider, has opened a specialised goods cargo terminal at Rome's Fiumicino airport (FCO).

The facility is able to offer security services — including active alarm systems, anti-intrusion devices and 24/7 CCTV monitoring — for high value cargo, plus specialist temperature-controlled areas for handling perishable goods.

"This brand new facility represents for Alha a new start in Rome FCO," said Lorenzo Schettini Gherardini, Alha Group chief executive, adding: "Rome FCO Airport is an essential gateway in the Italian infrastructural system, where air cargo plays a crucial role and is recording more and more positive results.

"Alha decided to invest in this cargo terminal, focusing on the requests from the local market for more reliable, qualified and effective services for special cargo. It is our aim to support our customers meeting their clients' expectations and growing their business."
