Singapore Airlines awards Brussels Airport cargo handling contract to WFS

The three-year deal to support Singapore Airlines’ five Boeing 747 cargo flights a week from Brussels reinforces WFS’ decision to invest in the new 250,000 tonne capacity freight facility less than two years after opening another new 9,000 sq. mt. terminal in the Brucargo West development.

The new, additional terminal is designed to support WFS’ customers’ premium products and uses new technologies to improve operational efficiency and customer experience.

This includes a dedicated pharma zone as well as kiosk-based, self-service reception points for truck drivers, enabling them to stay in their vehicles when completing cargo deliveries and collections, and expediting their assignment to one of the terminal’s 40 cargo gates. 

Barry Nassberg, group chief commercial officer at WFS, said: “This is a significant strengthening of our relationship with Singapore Airlines and represents big gains for our operations in Belgium, France and the UK because of the airline’s size and importance in the market.

“We understand this responsibility and greatly value Singapore Airlines’ confidence in WFS.”
