Belguim-based Brussels Airport Company has unveiled plans to invest €100m to develop and construct logistics buildings over three years.

The development plan is part of the operator’s strategy to enhance the airport’s position as the second most important logistics hub in the country.

Brussels Airport Company CEO Arnaud Feist said: “These investments are of huge importance for the logistics landscape in Belgium and are entirely in line with our Strategic Vision for 2040.

“With these investments, Brussels Airport will remain in the future a crucial hub for air transport and the logistic chains in Europe, at the service of many hundreds of companies in our country.

“It is also a strategic objective to offer more and in particular, even better support to the many companies who work through air cargo transport and enabling them to more easily import and export their goods from and to the whole world.”

“With these investments, Brussels Airport will remain in the future a crucial hub for air transport and the logistic chains in Europe.”

As part of the investment, Brussels Airport Company will construct logistics buildings spanning across 50,000m² on the west side of Brucargo for four different companies.

Once completed, the buildings will be handed over to Kuehne + Nagel, Dnata and WFS for shipping, packaging and temporarily stocking cargo.

The new infrastructure will be particularly suitable for the handling of high-quality and temperature-sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals.

Brussels Airport will also re-develop existing handling buildings, which are directly connected to the tarmac.

Plans are also underway to systematically transform the building into a modern and energy-efficient storage and office space over the next three years. It will have a total surface area of 30,000m².

A new, separate building will provide a secure area specifically for the transport of extremely valuable goods. Brinks will relocate to this building next year.

Brussels Airport Company will also develop an exclusive animal border inspection area with various temperature and/or light areas to create a suitable environment for animals.
