HACTL cargo up in Q1

HONG KONG Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) had a ‘satisfactory’ start to 2014.
In January, freight volumes rose to 144,564 tonnes, a 12.5 per cent improvement over the previous year.
Although cargo traffic was slower in February (95,947 tonnes), March was more promising, experiencing 15.3 per cent year-on-year growth, according to Mark Whitehead, chief executive of Hactl.
“We had a good start to the year with some new airline customers and increased volumes from our existing customers. The March tonnage was as high as the pre-Christmas peak in November 2013. The overall result of the first quarter was satisfactory.”
