Finnair Cargo has appointed Swissport as the new operator of its COOL Nordic Cargo Hub facility at Helsinki Airport. From June 2019, Swissport will handle over 600 tons of perishables, pharmaceuticals and general cargo daily.
The COOL Nordic Cargo Hub opened in 2018. It focusses on temperature-sensitive and high-value cargo shipments between Europe and Asia. Swissport will operate the 31,000m² facility as of June 2019. In addition to its operations at the COOL Nordic Cargo hub for Finnair Cargo, Swissport will continue to provide cargo services for other customers at its own cargo terminals at Helsinki airport.
Janne Tarvainen, managing director of Finnair Cargo, commented: “Swissport is already our trusted partner at numerous airports around the world and offers the most competitive package to further develop our cargo operations.
“With their drive for innovation and operational excellence they are an ideal partner for us to develop and expand our concept of data-driven and proactive operations steering across our network.”
