Logistics firm cargo-partner has opened a new office at Liège airport (LGG) to meet recent demand growth.
The company said that the new office comes on the back of strong volume growth at the airport as a result of an “absence of flight restrictions and customer-friendly solutions” while “other European airfreight transhipment sites have stagnated”.
“Numerous companies from the pharmaceutical and automotive industry have moved into the region and are benefiting from the favorable geographic and economic situation with a broad catchment area,” cargo-partner said.
“Thanks to the many carriers active at the Liège airport, it has developed into a significant e-commerce hub. As the cargo-partner shipping volumes at [the airport] have grown continuously, the decision was finally made to establish a new branch office, which went into operation already in April.”
The company has also opened a new office and warehouse site in Roermond, in the Netherlands.
The office in Roermond will be responsible for processing numerous national and international overland shipments by cargo-partner, while the new 7,000 sq m warehouse will function as a consolidation center for the regional logistics business when it opens at the beginning of June.
The site is under continuous video surveillance and is equipped with a CO₂ gas extinguishing system and state-of-the-art fire safety equipment. Hazardous goods can be stored in IBC containers, in drums and on pallets. The site is also suitable for the storage of hazardous goods packages.
