WFS, BIAL create landmark partnership

[ June 13, 2022   //   ]

WFS, a global air cargo logistics leader, is entering a new partnership with Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), which, in May 2023, will assume responsibility for the development, operation, management and maintenance of one of the cargo terminals at India’s third-largest cargo gateway for international import and export cargo. WFS will also operate and invest in the expansion of the airport’s dedicated Cold Chain Facility.
The cargo terminal awarded to WFS at BLR Airport, has the capacity to handle 210,000 Metric Tonnes (MT) of cargo a year. From May 2023, it will be used exclusively by WFS to handle international cargo.
WFS will use its design, build, finance, process reengineering and development experience to reorganize and refurbish the facility to increase its throughput capacity potential to serve cargo volumes in excess of 250,000 MT annually.
As operators of the dedicated Cold Chain Facility at the Airport, WFS and BIAL will begin a two-phase expansion of the dedicated operation, initially doubling its capacity to 80,000 MT per annum before increasing to a throughput capacity in excess of 150,000 MT per annum, post completion of phase 2.
