Aeroterm has broken ground on a Class A multi-tenant facility at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, FedEx will be the main tenant.
The 50,400 square foot facility is LEED certified, with the energy efficient building featuring insulated pre-cast concrete panels and will be used for airside cargo operations.
The facility, which will be completed in November, can accommodate cargo, GSE users, and other terminal support users such as flight kitchens or commissaries.
Alexi Lachambre, vice president of development at Aeroterm says: “The airport’s ideal central location and strong infrastructure make this development project an excellent addition to our Aeroterm portfolio. We look forward to our continued partnership with CVG and FedEx to support their growing infrastructure demands.”
In 2018, CVG handled more than 1.2 million tonnes of air cargo, an increase of 19.6% over 2017.
Amazon’s Prime Air cargo hub will be completed in 2025 and DHL also operates a global hub out of the airport.
