Anchorage plans Quick Cargo Center for transit cargo

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) is seeking a public-private partnership to provide a storage facility for transit cargo at the Alaskan hub.
The Quick Cargo Center (QCC) will be a secure, climate controlled facility next to the main cargo ramp, providing airfreight carriers the perfect opportunity to perform hub-and-spoke operations at the US gateway, said airport manager Jim Szczesniak.
ANC has identified two locations adjacent to ten flow-through cargo parking positions. The smallest plot would accommodate a QCC of up to 100,000 sq ft and provide convenient access to the road system.  The second location allocates enough space for a cargo terminal up to 380,000 sq ft. 
Szczesniak said that being only 9.5 hours from 90% of the industrialised world makes Anchorage "the Center of the Air Cargo World". 
He continued: "We listen to our customers, and continue to explore innovative ways to help them increase their efficiency. The QCC is just one more way we can keep cargo flowing through Anchorage and provide value-added service.”
In calendar year 2017,  ANC handled 2.7m tonnes, a 7.4% increase over full year 2016.
