Perishables and fresh foods are the focus of a new strategy at the Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport (DFW). The location is looking to boost its prowess as the preferred hub for transporting perishable goods by adding a 37,000-square-foot facility to its layout.

John Ackerman, Executive Vice President of Global Strategy and Development“There are tremendous growth opportunities for domestic and international cargo customers to ship perishables through DFW to 180 markets,” said John Ackerman, Executive Vice President of Global Strategy and Development, according to Air Cargo World. “This new facility will increase our handling capabilities and open new doors for all our cargo and logistics partners to ship high-value, temperature-, and time-sensitive products through DFW.”  

The new facility will feature 14,00-square-feet of refrigerated storage space to specifically preserve fresh foods and flowers. DFW stated that the transfer facility will open this June, and will be rain by AirLogistix USA. 

According to the airport’s latest figures, DFW handles more than 794,600 tons of airfreight per year. The airport services 22 major cargo hubs throughout the world. 

The planned expansion will allow DFW to control warehousing temperatures for its perishable products. The new strategy was born after the airport analyzed approximately 600 different tradelanes, and found 30 percent throwing up opportunities in comparison to other airports, according to The Loadstar. DFW’s new facility is part of a long-term strategy for the airport, and will continue to bolster the airport’s increasing volumes. 

Will this new facility further increase the airport’s impact on the industry? Deli Market News will report.
