25 / 04 / 2010
LAN Cargo has opened a new cold storage facility at the Miami International Airport, the largest of its kind at any airport in the US.
The US$4 million expansion of the current facility, doubles the airlines’ capacity to process perishable goods, which are the main export products from Latin America to the rest of the world via Miami.
“We continue to invest in the technology that allows us to provide the most efficient product for the development of the export industry in the region”, said Cristián Ureta, the airline’s chief executive officer. “In doing so, the company strengthens its leadership in the transportation of cargo between Latin America and the United States, and, more specifically, at the Miami International Airport, which is the main gateway to the North America market.”
“The recovery of the global economy has caused a significant increase in cargo traffic because of the larger demand for the air transportation of products and goods throughout the world. Latin America leads this growth, and we have made significant investments to support the development of the import and export activities in the region while offering world class service”, added Ureta.
