Swissport opens new cargo warehouse at Halifax International

By Damian Brett

Handler Swissport has opened a new air cargo warehouse at Halifax Stanfield International Airport on the back of increasing demand.

The 370 sq m facility is the handler’s sixth cargo location in Canada and the third new Canadian warehouse in under half a year.

In comparison with 2019, the company’s volumes in Canada are up 35%, underlining the need for increased warehousing and logistics capacity.

“With the opening of new warehouses across Canada, we are leveraging Swissport‘s global expertise to deliver world-class air cargo handling at more Canadian airports,” said Charles Roberge, chief executive of Swissport in Canada.

“We are adding more services in more places making sure we meet the growing needs of our customers and changes in the industry. With its comprehensive service portfolio Swissport in Canada aspires to be the partner of choice for global and local customer airlines alike and we will continue to invest in our service delivery.”

The company has also recently added new air cargo warehouses at Montréal–Mirabel International Airport and Edmonton International Airport.

The 500 sq m Montréal-Mirabel location adds cargo handling to the established fueling activities.

At Edmonton International Swissport opened a new 1,000 sq m air cargo warehouse with options for a further expansion.
