DFW to add refrigeration facilities for cargo customers

Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport will soon begin installing a cold chain facility that will be operated by AirLogistix USA, the company said.

Expected to be operational this summer, the state-of-the-art transfer facility will give DFW the ability to precisely control warehousing temperatures for shipments of pharmaceuticals, flowers, and fresh foods.

DFW handles more than 794,600 US tons of air freight, which is shipped to destinations all over the world. Fourteen dedicated freighters serve 22 major cargo hubs throughout Asia, Europe, and North America from DFW. Valuable belly cargo capacity is also available to more than 200 global destinations on the 26 passenger airlines that serve the airport.

DFW Airport produces over USD 37 billion in economic impact for the North Texas region and more than 50 percent of that is attributed to cargo.

Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport welcomes more than 65 million customers every year, and offers 157 domestic and 56 international nonstop destinations worldwide. Centered between its owner cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, DFW Airport also serves as a major economic generator for the North Texas region, producing over USD 37 billion in economic impact each year by connecting people through business and leisure travel.

AirLogistix USA has been in operation for over 5 years. AirLogistix IAH owns and operates the perishables handling facility at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). AirLogistix USA will soon be opening similar facilities at DFW International Airport.
