Last December, Groundforce Portugal reached a new monthly maximum for handling air cargo at the airports where it operates.
In total, 14,148 tonnes of cargo were handled at the company’s various terminals, in the set of import, export and transhipment activities, which represents a growth of 46% compared to December 2020.
According to Groundforce: “This new maximum demonstrates the resilience and increasing importance of our customers’ air cargo business and proves Groundforce Portugal’s ability to accompany them in this growth.”
Air cargo continues to play a key role during the pandemic due to its ability to quickly and safely transport essential goods, such as medicines and other perishable products, and the prospects point to the business continuing to evolve positively at national airports.
Groundforce Portugal is the largest handling company operating in Portugal, and provides services to aircraft, passengers and cargo at Lisbon, Porto, Faro, Funchal and Porto Santo airports.
