The Week in brief

By Hpanchal on March 23, 2012
  • Hanjin Logistics Europe B.V. has opened a new facility at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The center, which includes both bonded and non-bonded warehousing, will serve as a Benelux distribution center for the company’s imports to Amsterdam.
  • Singapore Changi Airport handled 143,900 tonnes of cargo in February, a 12.4 percent, year-over-year, increase. This is a significant improvement from the airport’s January statistics, which showed cargo movements dropping 7.1 percent, year-over-year. Airport officials blame the Chinese Lunar New Year for this month-over-month discrepancy.
  • Volga-Dnepr Airlines flew 25 snowmobiles weighing a combined 10 tonnes from St. Petersburg, Russia, to Salekhard, Russia, on an Ilyushin IL-76TD-90VD freighter. The government of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District tasked Volga-Dnepr with transporting the snowmobiles to Salekhard, which is located on the Arctic Polar Circle and plays host to the Yamalkan International Snowmobile Rally.
