Ground handler dnata expands cargo facility in Sydney

Ground handler dnata is expanding its cargo handling facility at Sydney Airport.

The company also signed a lease with the hub that will see it providing cargo handling services for the next five years.

When the 4,800 m sq expansion of the cargo facility at Sydney is complete, it will cover an area of around 16,300 sq m.

Features include an increased number of airside docks, enabling the handler to process higher volumes of cargo. An additional truck hoist will be in place by mid-2021 to complement the on-airport warehouse’s existing hoist. 

Brett Fuller, managing director, dnata Australia, said: “We are committed to consistently investing in infrastructure and equipment to deliver world-class service, safety and efficiency to our customers. This expansion provides strategic and operational benefits for dnata to support continued cargo volume growth driven by increased customer demand.”

Dnata already has cool chain facilities — including cool dollies — at its cargo facilities at Sydney Airport and Melbourne Airport. It is also GDP-certified for its handling of pharma goods.

The ground handler runs cargo operations at six airports in Australia: Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne and Perth. At these airports, it processes around 300,000 tonnes per year for more than 20 airline customers.

“In recent years dnata has invested significantly in infrastructure, equipment and training to provide the most innovative solutions to the market,” the company said in a statement.
