Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) in South Carolina, US has expanded its cargo facility.

The $5m facility expansion to 160,000 sq ft will allow cargo operations to continue to grow, said the airport’s owner, the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport (GSP) District.

“We continue to see record-breaking volumes of cargo come through our world-class facility,” said Dave Edwards, president and chief executive of GSP District.

“This expansion will position us to continue to be a major player in the international supply chain. It’s incredibly gratifying to be a part of the aviation industry’s meaningful impacts on South Carolina.”

GSP serves upstate South Carolina. In 2021, the volume of airfreight handled at GSP increased by 48% to nearly 97,000 tons.

The airport was ranked number 22 of all US airports for volume of international freight in 2021, according to USTradeNumbers.com. 

In 2019, the airport also invested in its cargo facilities.
