MIC Cargo signs lease at Rickenbacker

[ October 18, 2021   //   ]

MIC Cargo, a portfolio company of Inoa Ventures Management, has selected Rickenbacker International Airport as the site of their first location outside Chicago, leasing a 46,000 square foot facility adjacent to the Rickenbacker International Airport. With the addition of cargo terminal and export screening services, MIC Cargo becomes only the second full-service air cargo terminal services provider at Rickenbacker. This at a time when the airport’s number of flights and tonnage have continued to increase exponentially through the pandemic and with the challenges facing global ocean freight supply chains.

The building, located in the Alum Creek Logistics Center, was built in 1996 and features eight dock doors and one ramp. MIC is scheduled to begin handling cargo in the facility no later than January 2022.

“As we evaluated the greatest opportunities to expand the MIC Cargo brand and philosophy, we have been actively considering a number of cities and airports,” shares MIC Cargo CEO Edip Pektas. “From our point of view, Rickenbacker is where we felt it best to next open based on current traffic forecasts, the Rickenbacker logistics community and our opportunity to offer service to a number of our existing clients outside of Chicago.”
