DHL Express Germany and the Airport Munich GmbH (FMG) have concluded a contract to build a new freight building at Munich Airport.
The facility will have a gross floor area of more than 8,000m2 and will include direct airside access and two so-called PUD fingers for pick-up and delivery where up to 65 delivery vehicles can be dispatched simultaneously.
The company said this setup leads to a reduction in processing time, particularly for clients in the south of Germany. Furthermore, the new station will meet all safety requirements of TAPA, the Transported Asset Protection Association, and will be certified TAPA Class A for the highest security level in air transportation. Currently, the company has access to the freight center as a tenant of warehouse space.
Markus Reckling, managing director, DHL Express Germany, said, “After we had modernized and expanded our service center in Unterschleißheim for €13m (US$14.6m) last year, the new gateway is our next step in realizing our infrastructure plan.”
