UPS opens its new cargo facilities at Milan Bergamo
The global cargo operator recently inaugurated its new warehouse
As part of Milano Bergamo Airport’s ongoing infrastructural development, the airport has inaugurated new facilities with UPS which will nearly double the logistics corporation’s capacity at the Italian gateway. Providing an area of 5,000m², located in the new cargo development, the facilities are equipped with advanced sorting technology allowing UPS to process up to 3,800 packages per hour, twice as many as the previous amenities allowed.
Exclusively powered by renewable energy, particular attention has been paid to the sustainability of the new premises. Achieving a Class A1 Energy Performance Certificate after an almost zero-energy build, the warehouses and offices have been designed with optimum soundproofing and thermal insulations to guarantee high energy performance while removing the use of non-renewable sources.
As the company’s key Italian gateway, UPS operates three daily flights (Monday to Friday) to Milan Bergamo from its European hub in Cologne and/or onwards to further UPS stations, utilising the carrier’s widebody B767s. Enabling efficient handling of air cargo, the new facility offers further growth in Italy’s imports and exports market.
The position of Milan Bergamo airport in the economically very active, wealthy and dynamic market located east of Milan make it an ideal choice also for cargo operations.
