Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) opens an ultra-modern logistics facility of 8,700 sqm at Brussels Airport, developed by Montea.
Brussels Airport Company, WFS, and Montea inaugurated the new logistics facility, described as “exemplary by its modern logistics infrastructure”, to the west of the airport’s cargo zone on 1 February, eight months after construction began.
The new building is part of an ambitious development project within the cargo zone of Brussels Airport. On the west side, a 50,000 sqm building will be built in the coming months, with a total of EUR 100 million being invested in the cargo zone over the next two years.
“This new ultra-modern building developed with two of our most important partners is important for the Belgian logistics sector,” explains Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company. “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,” he adds.
The modern facility will also offer WFS the possibility of giving new stimulus to the quality standards and demanding requirements for the treatment of specialised freight shipments, says Marc Claesen, regional vice president WFS Northern Europe.
“For WFS, this new cutting-edge 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,” Claesen adds.
