Brussels Airport, Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) and Montea have inaugurated a new logistics centre in the west of the airport’s cargo zone eight months after the construction was started.

The state-of-the-art logistics building of 8,700 square metres at Brussels Airport, developed by Montea and is part of an ambitious development project within the cargo zone of Brussels Airport.

On the west side, a 50,000 square metre building will also be built in the coming months. In total, 100 million will be invested in the cargo zone over the next two years.

Brussels Airport Company chief executive officer, Arnaud Feist said: “This new ultra-modern building developed with two of our most important partners is important for the Belgian logistics sector. It fits in perfectly with our strategy for the sustainable development of the logistics activities of Brussels Airport.

“Brussels Airport once again confirms its role as a hub for logistics activities in Belgium and Europe. These developments allows us to support the many companies that increasingly use Brussels airport for importing and exporting goods to and from the entire world, and this in an even more efficient and effective manner.”

Montea chief commercial officer, Peter Demuynck added: “Montea has once again found a logistics solution for its client that enables a combination of increasing efficiency and future growth. With this new project in the Brussels Airport cargo zone, Montea confirms its exceptional real estate expertise in the field of air freight which allows it to work with the biggest players in this field.”

This ultra-modern site will offer WFS the possibility of giving new stimulus to the quality standards and demanding requirements for the treatment of specialised freightshipments. With its continuous growth and presence in 198 airports throughout the world, WFS is a long-standing partner of Brussels Airport.

WFS regional vice president for Northern Europe, Marc Claesen said: “For WFS, this new cuttingedge complex will allow us to continue to offer our clients efficient services with the best requirements in terms of safety and security while meeting the modern requirements of e-commerce and air transport of pharmaceutical products.”
