DUBAI: May 10, 2017. dnata is to acquire perishables cargo handler AirLogistix USA based at George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston.

The company's three year-old, 30,000 square feet cold store is the airport's only dedicated perishable cargo facility with direct aircraft access. Last year it handled 16,000 tons of pharmaceuticals, fruits, vegetables, fish and flowers.

Cool-chain-dnataAs part of purchase from Lynx Holdings, AirLogistix USA and dnata have agreed to open a 37,000 square feet terminal at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport that will also include a dedicated cold chain facility.

"There are tremendous growth opportunities for domestic and international cargo customers to ship perishables through DFW to 180 markets," explained John Ackerman, the airport's executive vice president for Global Strategy and Development.

"Today, we handle 66 percent of the air cargo from Texas, and our cargo tonnage increased by more than 8.0 percent over last year and is up 18 percent this year. This new facility will increase our handling capabilities and open new doors for all our cargo and logistics partners to ship high-value, temperature and time sensitive products through DFW," he added.

Stewart Angus, dnata's Divisional senior vice president of International Airport Operations, said the AirLogistix USA acquisition represents his company's first step into the U.S. cargo market. With the investments in Houston and Dallas Fort Worth, dnata will handle over 2.8 million tonnes of cargo at 42 airports worldwide.

AirLogistix USA founder and owner Ray Brimble noted: "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."
