Cargo handler Alliance Ground International (AGI) is opening a new airfreight facility near Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in New Jersey, US.

The 76,000 sq ft handling centre will process imported freight, trucked from the airport — located five minutes away.

Features include 19 cargo bay doors, active ULD charging stations, ULD storage and cold storage, pharma handling areas, security and easy access to major highways.

AGI is also relocating from its existing space on the airport site to a 24,000 sq ft facility. The on-airport site will be used to handle export cargo.

“An AGI in-house shuttle service will seamlessly connect cargo handling at the two facilities,” the company said.

Jared Azcuy (pictured), chief executive at AGI, commented: “Our dual-facility solution increases our air cargo handling capabilities while reducing wait times and truck congestion on the airport service roads. 

“It is a solution we have tried and tested at our other locations, and it will speed up processing, making for a more efficient and cost-effective operation.

“Our new facilities and digital solutions mean that AGI is more than ready to support customers in New Jersey.”

AGI is the largest independently owned ground handling company in the US. It offers domestic and international services, as well as priority products, special commodities and USPS Postal Operations.
