Airfreight Development

For airports that have a good runway, are well positioned geographically and enjoy reasonable surface transport connections, air freight can provide a potentially attractive revenue stream.

Principal activities include:-

  • Strategic evaluation of airfreight opportunities
  • Airfreight traffic forecasting
  • Industry liaison with airlines and forwarders
  • Airfreight handling advice
  • Airfreight facility design advice

Infrastructure advantages and good location are essential for a successful air freight facility. However a knowledge and understanding of regional export and import movements, the proximity of surface transport based logistics and distribution centres, and knowing the needs and demands of the freight forwarding industry are all equally important.

MPD directors have in depth knowledge of the airfreight industry, airlines and forwarder community and have been at the heart of the decision making processes that have enabled both Glasgow Prestwick and Maastricht Aachen Airports to enjoy record growth in air freight.

At both airports, this growth has been experienced in the face of fierce competition from much larger airports. Fast turnaround of main deck freighters and efficient data processing are two of the key factors that have given the airports competitive advantage.

MPD offers its substantial knowledge and experience in the field of airfreight development and operations to airports and those with an interest in airport development.

MPD can provide authoritative, impartial advice in determining the potential of an air freight facility or on any related aspects of airfreight design, development and operation.       

Airfreight Development Experience

MPD Directors have considerable experience of airfreight development through former roles at Glasgow Prestwick International Airport and at Maastricht Aachen Airport in the Netherlands where trucked and flown freight volumes were significantly increased.
