TAM Cargo inaugurates new terminal in Brazil


TAM Cargo inaugurated its new R$38 million (US$11.6 million) terminal, intended exclusively for domestic cargo.

With a total surface area of 15,000 sqm, the new terminal is the largest owned by LATAM Group in Brazil. Located in the Guarulhos area, the terminal has been restructured and provides new services that represent a significant improvement, considering that the previous one, also located in the vicinity of the airport, had a total surface area of 9,800 sqm.

This is the largest and most modern cargo terminal that LATAM Airlines Group owns in Brazil, with a capacity to handle more than 1,000 tonnes of cargo daily. Among its advantages, the terminal allows for the simultaneous handling of cargo transported by freighters and by passenger aircraft.

Another advantage of the new terminal is that the whole cargo movement process is automated, with an intelligent identification system. Cargo and platforms are labeled and tracked using bar codes, thus allowing for products to be located and retrieved using automated bar-code reading. The terminal also features a large cold-storage chamber, with a total surface area of 900 sqm and 76 rack positions (cargo space), designed to store perishables, including fish and pharmaceuticals. The number of customer service booths has been increased by 73 per cent and customers will now enjoy more parking capacity, with flexibility to receive all types of vehicles.
