Shanghai Pudong International Airport Cargo Terminal Co., Ltd. (PACTL) saw tonnage grow by 12.52 percent in January and February compared to the same time period in 2013.
The company handled 191,361 tonnes in January and February, the best result for the first two months of the year in the history of PACTL. It beat the previous record set in 2011.
PACTL’s domestic cargo volumes grew by 7.14 percent to 14,199 tonnes in January and February year over year, while its international cargo rose by 12.97 percent to 177,162 tonnes. Imports increased by 22.68 percent to 81,949 tonnes, while exports grew by 5.95 percent to 109,412 tonnes compared to the previous year.
“This shows that we were able to continue the strong performance we achieved in 2013 when PACTL handled almost 1.3 million tonnes of airfreight,” Lutz Grzegorz, vice president of PACTL, said. “The positive development not only reflects growth in the domestic market and the ongoing recovery of the international markets, but our expanding client base too.”
