Sustainable growth to an annual 650,000 tonnes of cargo recognised internationally.
Brussels Airport was voted best cargo airport of 2014 at the Shanghai World Air Cargo Awards, the prestigious awards ceremony of the cargo industry. With 650,000 tonnes of cargo a year, Brussels Airport plays a key role in international cargo traffic and in the success of major logistics sectors.
The air cargo activities at BRUcargo constitute an important part of Brussels Airport’s activities. Every year, Brussels Airport, the cargo airlines and logistics partners invest tens of millions of euros resulting in new activities and additional job creation. BRUcargo is an attractive workplace for the over 5,000 staff who are employed there. This award was won due to their work.
The World Air Cargo Award ceremony for the air cargo industry is organised every year and is the most prestigious in the world. Cargo airlines, airports and cargo companies are nominated in different categories. Everyone who’s active in the cargo industry can vote for a company, carrier or airport that in their view offers the most excellent service.
“This award, which is the most important award in the air cargo industry, demonstrates the progress we have made in recent years. Our cargo activities and infrastructure are a vital engine for the logistics development of the entire airport region and generate enormous added value for the whole of the Belgian economy”, Arnaud Feist, CEO comments.
