Hamilton Airport to build US$11m air cargo facility

JOHN C MUNRO Hamilton International Airport has released details of this US$11million new Air Cargo Logistics Facility, which is due to open in 2015.
It will have direct airside access on a redeveloped parcel of land at the Canadian airport.
The project is being funded through a joint partnership between the federal and Ontario governments and TradePort International Corporation, with support from Hamilton’s municipal government.
Equipped with multiple trucking docks and specialised handling environments, the Air Cargo Logistics Facility will cater to niche product markets such as pharmaceutical and biomedical industries, automobile manufacturing and perishable goods, says a statement.
“A focus on developing customised solutions for the efficient movement of such goods in and out of the southern Ontario region will further support the development of clean industries in and around the Hamilton area,” a spokesperson adds. 
The development will build on Hamilton’s strength as a multi-modal gateway for goods movement.
“A recruitment process is also currently underway to secure a dedicated handling agent committed to providing superior service standards for the handling of specialised products through the facility.”
