    LATAM Cargo Brazil is upgrading its perishable services with the construction of a cooler facility at Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos airport, significantly increasing capacity.

    The perishables hub will be able to store 33% more perishable cargo than the existing hub, covering 17,620 square feet, of which 8,880 square feet will be coolers.

    The facility will include two areas, one storage cooler of 5,242 square feet set at 32-36F and the other 3,638 square feet at 36-55F for storage and re-palletising purposes.

    The system has the capacity to increase the temperature up to 77F in case there is a specific perishable that request a different temperature range.

    LATAM Cargo says it will be able to fulfil the needs of the main perishable products exported by the region including salmon, asparagus, mangoes, cherries, berries, southern hake and flowers.

    Andres Bianchi, CEO of LATAM Cargo says: “Building a new cooler facility focused on connecting perishable traffic in our main hub enables us to boost our strategic position. We can now offer our perishable customers a growing number of O-D pairs while maintaining the high quality standards associated with our value proposition. Furthermore, the increased flexibility gained with this facility enables us to work on a more efficient fashion.”

    LATAM Cargo says the facility will be able to reduce the time cargo is exposed, since the re-palletising process will be done under a temperature-controlled environment and all the cargo will be stored at the same location.

    More than 45% of LATAM Cargo’s volumes are perishable shipments and 14% or 24,000 tonnes transit through Guarulhos.

    Claudio Torres, South America commercial vice president of LATAM Cargo says: “We are very excited to share this investment with our customers as it will greatly benefit them by providing a more robust alternative to continue expanding the perishable exports’ volume from Latin America to the world.”

    The Port of New Orleans (NOLA) set a new container volume record in 2018 having handled 591,253 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), up 12.3 percent year-on-year.

    The record marks the fifth year in a row Port NOLA has surpassed the half million TEU-mark at its Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal, which is operated by New Orleans Terminal and Ports America.

    “The expansion of the Panama Canal and growth in containerized exports, namely resin and frozen poultry, have buoyed Port NOLA’s containerized cargo to record levels. In addition, loaded imported containers rose 7 percent, which continues to be a focus of Port NOLA’s marketing efforts,” said Brandy D. Christian, Port NOLA President and CEO.

    “We anticipate further growth, as direct all-water carrier services to Asia, Europe and the Mediterranean attract larger vessels.”

    The port welcomed its largest vessel yet in October 2018, the 9,500-TEU Pusan C, operated by France-based ocean carrier CMA CGM.

    “In the short-term we plan to double our capacity at the Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal to more efficiently service larger ships and expand our container yard,” Christian said.

    “Part of the investment includes an expanded partnership with Ports America, which will invest USD 66.5 million into infrastructure and equipment, accommodating up to four new 100-guage container cranes to facilitate larger ships, along with investments of up to USD 300 million for expansion opportunities within our three-parish (county) jurisdiction.”

    Port NOLA is also growing the  container-on-barge service, in partnership with the Port of Greater Baton Rouge and operator SEACOR AMH. In 2018, that service moved 26,759 TEUs by barge, up 58 percent compared to 2017.

    Another driving force for container traffic is the port’s growing intermodal service which booked 15 percent volume growth from 2017 to 2018.

    Port NOLA now features 11 weekly container services from three major global alliances as well as independent carriers, with direct connections to 58 global ports and more than 450 other ports through connecting services.

    Qatar Airways Cargo has begun a twice-weekly B777 freighter service to Almaty, Kazakhstan (right) with a return to Doha via Hong Kong.

    Chief operating officer Cargo Guillaume Halleux commented: “2018 was a great year for us and we are excited to launch our second freighter destination in 2019, just 10 days after the launch of freighter services to Guadalajara, Mexico.

    “The new addition further strengthens our global freighter network while expanding our footprint in Europe, which is a key market for air freight,” he continued.

    CAL Cargo Airlines has transported the first Israeli spacecraft, the SpaceIL from Tel Aviv to Orlando, Florida on a Boeing 747-400ERF.

    The precious cargo required very strict temperature requirements, with the size and weight, as well as numerous dangerous goods making the mission very complicated.

    The CAL DG, CAL BIG and CAL AEROSPACE products and procedures were implemented prior to and throughout the entire operation.

    SpaceIL says: “The lunar landing will culminate eight years of intensive collaboration between SpaceIL and IAI, and will make Israel the fourth country after the U.S., China and Russia to reach the moon.

    “The spacecraft will be launched as a secondary payload on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, and its journey to the moon will last about two months, ending on its expected landing date.

    The Israeli lunar spacecraft will be the smallest to land on the moon, weighing only 1,322 pounds, or 600 kilograms.”

    Virgin Atlantic Cargo and Delta Cargo will double their cargo footprint at Heathrow Airport when they move into the purpose built dnata City East later this year.

    The move – scheduled for the second half of 2019 – will increase the size of Virgin and Delta’s cargo operation at Heathrow to 335,000 sq ft and customers will benefit from greater automation and faster truck and cargo handling times.

    The facility will deliver the highest levels of service, security and automation, with customer trucks benefitting from a door management system, allowing drivers to complete paperwork at the gatehouse on arrival without leaving their vehicles and then be assigned to a cargo door.

    Inside, investments in technology will enable staff using handheld devices to manage the flow of cargo, while the double-train ETV system will increase storage to 245 positions for pallets and containers.

    The location will provide further benefits for customers moving temperature-controlled healthcare and life science products as well as offering a dedicated perishables zone an enlarged AVI centre for live animals.

    Tania Boyes, director – cargo operations at Virgin Atlantic says moving into dnata City East will be a “game changer”.

    She says: “It will not only double our capacity at Heathrow and provide space to grow, it reinforces our commitment to be easier to do business with, to use new technologies and automation to simplify and improve our customer experience, and to leverage our partnerships.”

    Rafael Figueroa, managing director – operations and customer experience at Delta Cargo says: “This state-of-the art facility will put the customer at the forefront with improved facilities and innovative technology solutions, as well as positioning Delta Cargo and Virgin Atlantic Cargo for future growth in this key market.”

    Gary Morgan, CEO of dnata UK says: “As a key partner, we are excited to be supporting the growth of both airlines by not only investing in this brand new facility but by also embracing their commitment to using new technologies to achieve service efficiencies and benefits for their customers.”
