dnata inaugurates first dedicated perishables centre at Dallas airport


Ground handler dnata has officially opened a 37,000 sq ft cargo centre that includes the only dedicated cool-chain perishable cargo facility at Dallas (DFW) airport.
The cargo handling centre, which started some operations last year ahead of full opening, is suitable for all perishable products and was developed as part of its agreement with AirLogistix USA, which it acquired last year, the company said.
Around 18,000 sq ft of the facility is dedicated to cool-chain solutions with staff trained to ensure that perishables such as pharmaceuticals, fruits, vegetables, fresh fish and seafood, meat and flowers maintain their freshness during the entire air transportation process.
Having received the IATA's CEIV accreditation, Japan Airlines was the first launch customer to experience the state-of-the-art facility from November 1, 2017, according to London's Air Cargo News.
Dnata USA chief executive David Barker said: "We realised that it was not only important for us to build a modern cool-chain facility to meet our long-term objectives, but to also go the extra mile and ensure the compliance of our operations against the highest international standards.
"There is a clear need to increase capacity and ensure our customers have the flexibility that meets their specific needs via our cool-chain solutions."
Executive vice president global strategy and development at DFW, John Ackerman, said: "Shippers in many trade lanes between Latin America and Asia with perishables like salmon, berries, and asparagus, can save as much as two days by using DFW over other airports. DFW's strength lies in its airline network of passenger service with daily belly cargo capacity between Latin America and Asia combined with our excellent freighter services to Asia by nine Asian air freighter operators."
