Emirates’ new cargo terminal in Dubai

Emirates’ new cargo terminal in Dubai is set to reach completion of its first stage this month.

After this milestone is met, the cargo handling system will be installed and the interior of the terminal will be fitted out by April 2014. Full completion is set for mid-September 2014.

The new cargo terminal will be able to handle 700,000 tonnes of freight, with the second phase to add an additional 300,000 tonnes.

It will feature the following:

  • A fully automated ULD handling and storage system
  • Offices
  • Workstation Areas
  • Building service facilities
  • 46 truck docks
  • 80 truck parking spaces
  • 12 aircraft stands directly in front of the terminal

“The development of our new freighter cargo terminal is progressing well,” Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President – Cargo, said. “Once complete, it will be a modern and efficient cargo facility that can be expanded to meet our future growth requirements. The relocation of our freighter fleet to Dubai World Central Al Maktoum International Airport is an investment in our future, as the logistics and cargo development at the airport is set to become a major global cargo hub once complete, with world-class facilities and infrastructure.”
