New Air Cargo Center Dedicated at Canada’s Hamilton International Airport
The new Air Cargo Center at John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport is open for business.
The 77,000-square foot facility in Hamilton, Ontario, will support a variety of logistics services, from multiple truck docks, to dedicated merchandise and courier handling, as well as secured customs areas and also include temperature-controlled systems for a wide variety of climate-sensitive goods such as flowers, fruits and vegetables, and pharmaceutical products.
Air carrier Cargojet will be the primary tenant at the facility and occupy approximately half of the space.
“This facility will allow us to maintain Hamilton International Airport’s dominant presence in the overnight express cargo segment in Canada, and create new opportunities to diversify the types of goods that can be processed through the Airport,” said airport President and CEO Frank Scremin.
Total estimated cost of the new air cargo facility project is $12 million with the governments of Canada and Ontario jointly committing $8 million towards the total cost of the project and an additional $4 million was committed by the Tradeport International Corp., which is responsible for management and development of the airport. “We’re thrilled with the new air cargo center and look forward to the opportunities it will help facilitate at John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport,” said Scremin. The facility “will allow us to maintain Hamilton International Airport’s dominant presence in the overnight express cargo segment in Canada, and create new opportunities to diversify the types of goods that can be processed through the Airport.”
