Brussels Airport Company will be investing EUR 100 million in ultramodern logistics buildings. This investment will further strengthen the crucial position of Brussels Airport as the 2nd most important logistics cluster in Belgium, serving the top players in the aviation industry, including Kuehne + Nagel, Swissport Cargo Services, Dnata, Brinks and many hundreds of other companies.
Today, more than a hundred different players in the logistics chain are already active at Brucargo, the cargo area of Brussels Airport. In this way, Brucargo offers Belgium a crucial platform for the import and export of many companies and is, after the Port of Antwerp, the 2nd most important logistics hub for international trade. The area is a crucial engine for economic growth in the country, not least because of its exceptional central location between all important industrial centres. Brussels Airport Company will be making large investments in the coming period to further strengthen Brucargo.
In recent years (between 2009 and 2013), three large air cargo buildings have been developed. Today, companies such as bpost, DHL GLOBAL Forwarding, Abbott and a number of specialised logistics companies make use of them. Last year, DHL Express opened their 31.500 sqm brand new state of the art sorting center at Brussels Airport.
