Western Sydney Airport has partnered with an additional two freight industry leaders, dnata and Toll Group, to collaborate on the design of its freight precinct. This will happen in addition to the efforts of the 10 freight industry partners already signed up.
Western Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer Graham Millett said Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport will open up global markets to Australian exporters, supporting the NSW economy into the future: “This freight precinct has the potential to become Sydney’s most important freight hub, generating thousands of jobs, and we’re thrilled to have two of the industry’s leaders, dnata and Toll Group, on board enabling us to optimise the functionality and design for our freight customers at Sydney’s new Airport.”
“Western Sydney International has the capacity to become one of Australia’s largest airports in years to come, so engaging with our customers to develop a ‘fit-for-purpose’ precinct upon opening and into the future is critical. For freight companies, it’s an enticing proposition - we can offer landside and airside freight access on a greenfield site with 24/7 operations. Our MOU partners can share with us what size facility they need, what technology they want and how they want it designed to optimise productivity.”
With expertise in ground-handling along with other airline support services, dnata will provide a unique insight into the operations required to support both passenger and cargo services.
