Shanghai Pudong Int’l Airport Cargo Terminal Co., Ltd. (PACTL), a Shanghaibased Sino-German joint venture, has achieved a year-on-year tonnage growth rate of 12.5 per cent. The company handled 191,361 tonnes in January and February 2014 and this was the best result for the first two months of the year in the history of PACTL, beating the previous record set in 2011.

PACTL’s domestic cargo volumes grew by 7.1 per cent to 14,199 tonnes in January and February 2014 in comparison with the same period in 2013, while its international cargo rose by 13 per cent to 177,162 tonnes. Imports increased by 23 per cent to 81,949 tonnes, while exports grew by six per cent 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 air freight. 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”, says Lutz Grzegorz, VP of PACTL.
