Aerotem completes new air cargo facility at CVG

Published: Tuesday, April 6, 2021

Cargo-facility developer Aerotem has completed a new 50,400 sq ft air cargo facility at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).

The facility is suitable for air cargo, ground support equipment and other terminal support users, such as flight kitchens and commissaries.

Features of the hub include: 6,000 sq ft of available space and the option to expand by 120,000 sq feet in future phases; insulated precast walls with structural steel framing; direct access to aircraft apron and ground support equipment-rated concrete tie-in for equipment storage and freight staging; and an integrated airport security system.

Aeroterm said the facility was implemented to “meet the additional capacity needs at the airport as the demand for shipping grows”.

Alexi Lachambre, the company’s vice president of investments and development, commented: “There has been a strong increase in cargo volumes and GSE [ground support equipment] support needs at CVG Airport in recent years and this expansion project is a direct response to that increasing demand. It was a privilege to work on this project and we look forward to our continued partnership with CVG to support their growing needs.”

Other logistics facilities at CVG include a DHL base and Amazon’s new Prime Air cargo hub, which is expected to complete in 2025.

Aeroterm is implementing airfreight hubs at John F. Kennedy International Airport, Miami International Airport and Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. It is also in the latest phase of development of a hub at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
