Infrastructure for air freight
The airport's Air Freight Facility is organised around a central structural line separating the first line of warehouses with offices (those with direct access to the aircraft parking apron) from the second line, where the logistics operators and freight forwarders are located.
In the first line logistics warehouses, the warehouse handling agents provide their services to the airlines which operate in the airport in everything relating to the physical handling and documentation of the goods to be transported by air. This area also houses the courier and urgent transport companies that operate aircraft at the airport.
The second line logistics warehouses houses all the companies relating to goods transportation logistics, for whom an airport location is a competitive advantage. There are also the parking spaces and office buildings needed for an efficient operation.
