Brussels Airport invests US$123m in logistics buildings

Brussels Airport Company will invest €100m (US$123m) in ultramodern logistics buildings at its ‘Brucargo’ cargo area, strengthening its position as the second most important logistics cluster in Brussels, Belgium, after the Port of Antwerp.

The airport will construct a state-of-the-art building measuring 538,000ft² that will be home to Kuehne + Nagel, Dnata and WFS who will make use of these buildings for shipping, packaging and temporarily stocking cargo. The new infrastructure will be specifically suited for the handling of high-quality and temperature-sensitive products.

Brussels Airport will also redevelop existing handling buildings that have direct access to the tarmac. The building in which handling agent Swissport is active will be transformed into a modern and energy-efficient storage and office space measuring 322,000ft².

An additional new building will provide a secured area for the specific transportation of extremely valuable goods. Security company Brinks will be moving into this building in 2019. In addition, Brussels Airport Company is investing in an exclusive inspection area of more than 21,000ft², fitted out in various temperature and/or light areas, for the temporary accommodation and the shipment of various types of animals.

“These investments are of huge importance for the logistics landscape in Belgium and are entirely in line with our Strategic Vision for 2040. With these investments, Brussels Airport will remain in the future a crucial hub for air transport and the logistic chains in Europe, at the service of many hundreds of companies in our country,” explained Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company.

“It is also a strategic objective to offer more and in particularly even better support to the many companies who work through air cargo transport and enabling them to more easily import and export their goods from and to the whole world. This not only ensures employment at the airport itself, but also in various other sectors in all parts of the country.”
