The IAH International Air Cargo Centre II at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in the US will become the new handling facility for perishable imports arriving at Houston from international markets.

The Tradewinds facility features 12,000ft² area for cold storage and has direct ramp access for goods entering airside and for trucks leaving with shipments.

The facility is located beside a consolidated Federal Inspection Services Centre, which handles the processing and certification of imported products.

Tradewinds will provide other import and export value-added services, such as precooling imports, sorting imports, relabelling imports, certified cargo screening and trans-shipment.
