GUARULHOS, Brazil: January 31, 2018. LATAM Cargo has commenced construction on a cooler facility in Guarulhos (Brazil) that will bolster the airline's more perishable cargo volumes by 33 percent.

LATAM Cargo B767“Building a new cooler facility focused on connecting perishable traffic in our main hub enables us to boost our strategic position. We can now offer our perishable customers a growing number of O-D pairs while maintaining the high quality standards associated with our value proposition. Furthermore, the increased flexibility gained with this facility enables us to work on a more efficient fashion”, stated Andrés Bianchi, CEO LATAM Cargo

One of the main benefits of having this facility is that the LATAM Cargo re-palletizing process and transport to an aircraft will be done under a temperature-controlled environment.

More than 45 percent of LATAM Cargo’s volumes are perishable shipments and currently 14 percent – more than 24,000 tons - transits through Guarulhos. Salmon, fruit and asparagus are the most transported perishables.

“We are very excited to share this investment with our customers as it will greatly benefit them by providing a more robust alternative to continue expanding the perishable exports’ volume from Latin America to the world,” commented Claudio Torres, South America Commercial VP LATAM Cargo.

Guarulhos has become a strategic hub for LATAM Cargo thanks to its connectivity between Latin America and Miami, London, Madrid and Paris, among other destinations.
