Canada’s John C Munro Hamilton International Airport has released details of the CDN$12 million (US$10.9 million) Air Cargo Logistics Facility slated to open in 2015. The project is funded through a joint partnership between the federal and Ontario governments and TradePort International Corporation, with support from Hamilton’s municipal government.

The Air Cargo Logistics Facility will be built with direct airside access on a redeveloped parcel of land. Equipped with multiple trucking docks and specialised handling equipment, the Air Cargo Logistics Facility will cater to niche product markets such as pharmaceutical and biomedical industries, automobile manufacturing and perishable goods. A focus on developing customised solutions for the efficient movement of such goods in and out of the southern Ontario region.

The facility will add to Hamilton’s strength as a multi-modal gateway for goods movement and set a strong footing for future development of the Airport Employment Growth District, a city initiative to develop designated lands surrounding the Airport for light industrial and commercial activities. Hamilton International Airport will release a tender for construction of the facility in the coming weeks.
