CAS sees Miami perishable volumes soar after investment

Time:2015-12-26 20:48 Source:Air Cargo News Writer:admin Click:Times

Consolidated Aviation Services (CAS) has seen perishable volumes quadruple since it expanded its centre at Miami Airport.

 

The cargo handler more  than  doubled  the  size  of its perishables facility at the airport in  2014  with  the  addition  of  a  new  $2.5m 18,000sq ft cooler  alongside  its  existing  12,000sq  ft perishables  building,  which  opened  in  2009.

 

In the first nine months since the expanded centre opened, throughput climbed to 70,000 tonnes, a 400% increase on its volumes before the investment.

 

The  investment  increased  the  building’s  capacity  to  handle  up  to  90  ULDs  at  one  time,  added  further  16-foot  wide  airside  doors  to  expedite  shipment  handling,  and  introduced  a  refrigerated  dock  to  handle  trucks  within  a  temperature-controlled  environment.

 

A  new  agriculture  inspection  facility  and  walk-in  freezer  also  formed  part  of  the  latest  expansion  as  well  as  multiple  cool  chambers  for  fish,  flowers  and  produce  that  need  to  be  maintained  in  specific  temperature  conditions.     

                  

Ray  Jetha,  senior vice president sales and marketing at  CAS  said:  “Miami  is  a  major  airport  for  CAS  and  one  where  we  have  been  investing  for  a  number  of  years  to  keep  pace  with  the  growth  of  our  longstanding  customers  as  well  as  new  airlines  that  recognise  Miami’s  strong  position  in  the  US  market  and  as  a  gateway  to  Latin  America. 

 

“The  improvements  to  our  perishables  handling  centre  have  helped  us  manage  the  increased  demand  for  our  services  and  we  will  invest  again  in  the  future  when  we  see  the  need  to  do  so  to  support  our  customers  and  maintain  our  strong  position  in  the  region.”  

                   

Miami  is  the  perishables  gateway  to  and  from  the  US,  handling  85%  of  all  perishables  air  imports  into  the  country and  80%  of  air  exports.  This  adds  up  to  over  720,000  tons  of  fresh  fish,  vegetables,  fruits  and  flowers  per  annum  for  the  US  market  as  well  as  for  customers  in  Europe,  the  Middle  East  and  Asia.
