BRUSSELS: March 09, 2018. The Brussels Airport Company (BAC) is to invest €100 million over the next three years in new cargo facilities for its customers including Kuehne + Nagel, Swissport, Dnata and Brinks.

BRUcargo DEVWith more than 100 logistics companies already using the Brucargo terminal, the new investment is expected to endorse the airport’s position as Belgium’s most important logistics cluster after Antwerp.

The move follows the construction of three facilities between 2009 and 2013 for several companies including the Belgian Post Group, DHL Global Forwarding and Abbott.

BAC will begin building a 50,000 sq.mt. specialized facility on the west side of Brucargo to enable Kuehne + Nagel, Dnata and WFS to store, package and ship pharma products; transform an existing 30,000 sq.mt. building used by Swissport into a modern and energy-efficient storage and office space; open a new secure facility for Brinks next year to handle high-value traffic; and invest in a 2,000 sq.ft. accommodation and inspection area for the shipment of live animals.

“These investments are of huge importance for the logistics landscape in Belgium and are entirely in line with our Strategic Vision for 2040,” said Arnaud Feist, BAC CEO. “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,” he added.
