Cargo handler Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has opened a new cargo handling facility at Brussels Airport.
The new 8,700 sq m facility, developed by Montea, began operations on February 1. It is part of a wider development project within the cargo zone of Brussels Airport.
A 50,000 sq m building will be added in the coming months and in total, €100m will be invested in the cargo zone over the next two years.
Brussels Airport Company chief executive Arnaud Feist said: "This new ultra-modern building developed with two of our most important partners is important for the Belgian logistics sector.
"It fits in perfectly with our strategy for the sustainable development of the logistics activities of Brussels Airport.
"These developments allows us to support the many companies that increasingly use Brussels airport for importing and exporting goods to and from the entire world, and this in an even more efficient and effective manner.’
Marc Claesen, regional vice president WFS Northern Europe, added: “For WFS, this new cutting-edge complex will allow us to continue to offer our clients efficient services with the best requirements in terms of safety and security while meeting the modern requirements of e-commerce and air transport of pharmaceutical products.”
