Cargo-partner to open new office and warehouse at Budapest Airport

cargo-partner will open a newly built office and warehouse at Budapest Airport and will be one of the first tenants of ‘BUD Cargo City’ whose construction began in January 2019.

cargo-partner in Hungary was founded as one of the international company’s first foreign branches and has since developed to become one of the most important pillars of cargo-partner’s branch network.

With over 140 employees in three offices, cargo-partner will now further strengthen its position in the country by moving its airport subsidiary to the newly constructed logistics center BUD Cargo City at the end of 2019.

The logistics center will provide a 7,500 square metre warehouse with an office mezzanine as well as a three-story office building, all designed to provide ideal conditions for airfreight forwarders. In addition, cargo-partner operates a head office in the city center as well as a warehouse in Gyál.

The Hungarian subsidiary of cargo-partner is scheduled to become one of the first tenants of the new forwarding center. With the relocation to BUD Cargo City, the company is expanding its warehouse space to 1,200 square metres and its office space to 400 square metre.

cargo-partner had expressed interest in the BUD Cargo City construction project from the start and said it sees this relocation as an opportunity to offer its customers further improved, faster and thus more competitive services on a larger area.

In addition to regular departures from and to the most important air cargo hubs, cargo-partner also offers ‘On-Board Courier’ services, charter solutions, temperature-controlled transports as well as comprehensive competence in handling special and dangerous goods transports.

With this varied offering, cargo-partner said it wants to “position itself strongly on the constantly growing airfreight market in the country”.

The BUD Cargo City project is part of the airport development program BUD 2020. In the scope of this program, Budapest Airport is investing €160 to 180 million into the development of the airport.
