Dnata to commence cargo operations in the US

Posted 10 May 2017 · Add Comment

Dnata has reached an agreement with Lynx Holdings LP to acquire its AirLogistix USA cargo handling operations at George Bush Intercontinental Airport Houston (IAH) in the USA.

The 30,000 sq ft facility includes the only dedicated perishable cargo facility at Houston airport. This state-of-the-art cargo handling centre is suitable for all perishable products including pharmaceuticals, fruits, vegetables, fish and flowers, and further establishes Dnata as a global leader in perishable cargo handling. 

In 2016, over 16,000 tonnes of perishable cargo were handled from this warehouse. In addition to this, the facility also has capacity to handle up to 20,000 tonnes of regular air cargo. 

As part of this transaction, AirLogistix USA and Dnata have committed to open a similar facility at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in summer 2017.  This second facility will be 37,000 sq ft, again including a dedicated perishables handling facility. 

“Our strategy is to offer the highest level of service in each market we operate”, said Stewart Angus, Dnata’s divisional senior vice president of international airport operations. “The AirLogistix USA operation fits the bill and will further enhance our growing international cargo network. This represents dnata’s first step into the US cargo market. We look forward to working with the Houston and Dallas Fort Worth Airports to support continued growth at these important airports,” he added. 

“Having started the company from the concept of service excellence, I am delighted that AirLogistix USA will now be part of the Dnata team” said Ray Brimble, AirLogistix USA founder and owner. “I am passing AirLogistix USA into good hands.  Dnata’s commitment to service and safety at the highest standards and its continued investment in its product is in line with our philosophy, and ensures our customers will continue to receive the quality service they expect."
