New cargo terminal opens for business at Zhengzhou Xinzheng International


A new cargo terminal at Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport has begun to receive shipments as it prepares for full opening.

Freight forwarder Dimerco Express said that it had worked with Cathay Pacific on its first flight for the new Zhengzhou North Cargo Terminal at the Henan Province hub.

The 160,000 sq m terminal will add 600,000 tons of freight capacity, bringing the airport’s total air cargo capacity to 1.1m tons.

“The Zhengzhou Terminal has been growing in importance as China’s Central Plains area continues to open up to more manufacturing and trade activity,” Dimerco said.

The new terminal offers automated scanning, weighing and cargo transport within the terminal.

The facility also offers a large cold chain area, a new customs inspection area, and 101 shipping docks.

“Development of the Airport is a strategic priority for the Chinese government, which will invest CYR4.9bn over the next decade to expand passenger and cargo capacity,” Dimerco said.

By 2035, the Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport will have five runways and three cargo zones, and will have the capacity to serve 100m passengers and 5m tons of cargo annually.

The new facility is not the only cargo-related airport development in China to have opened recently.

In July, Ezhou Huahu Airport began operations as China’s first “professional cargo hub airport”.
