Magdeburg Airport expanding cargo facilities

By Hpanchal on September 6, 2013

Magdeburg Cochstedt International Airport, in Germany’s Saxony Anhalt region, has begun construction of a 9,000-sq.-m. (96,930-sq.-ft.) air-side cargo warehousing facility, including a state-of-the art 2,250-sq.-m. (24,232-sq.-ft.) perishables center.

Phase one of the project is scheduled for opening during the fourth quarter of 2013 and will complement Magdeburg’s existing airport facilities which include a 3,100 x 45 meter runway and a fully unrestricted 24 hour operating license. Magdeburg is formally registered on the EU KCRAD database as a known consignor.

The new cargo facilities will be equipped with the latest X-ray scanning equipment with full customs and clearing facilities on site.

The airport is located 150 km (93 miles) southwest of Berlin within a major logistics and regional distribution center hub for a number of leading German supermarket groups, pharmaceutical and automotive companies. It is the closest cargo airport to Volkswagens’s global production headquarters at Wolfsburg, 45 km (27 miles). The airport is located on a 240-hectare industrial park.
