dnata to get new cargo building at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

A new cargo building is being developed by Schiphol Commercial Real Estate for its tenant dnata on the Schiphol-Southeast cargo area at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

The cargo building, also known as dnata Cargo City Amsterdam, will be one of the world's largest and most advanced logistics buildings at an airport.

"It will soon consist of approximately 61,000 m2 of commercial space, including 6,700 m2 of internal office space and with an annual cargo handling capacity of 850,000 tonnes. The building was designed by DP6 architects, and the construction work will be carried out by De Vries and Verburg Bouw B.V. The building will be provided with the most modern and advanced equipment by the tenant dnata and is expected to be ready for use in the summer of 2024."

Sustainable and innovative
Schiphol has high sustainability ambitions for the new cargo building including:
*at least 50% of the building consists of recycled materials.
*Cargo warehouse has a partly wooden supporting structure. The so-called Eagles Nest with control room, catering facilities, meeting rooms and storage is almost entirely made of wood.
*Gigantic roof will be equipped with solar panels.
*Building will be connected to a heat and cold storage system; and
Cargo building will be completely demountable.

dnata is currently located in cargo building 5/6 at Schiphol-South. The building will be demolished in 2024 to complete the second phase of the doubling of the Quebec taxiway. Doubling this taxiway will increase safety at Schiphol and improve the infrastructure for airlines and Air Traffic Control in the Netherlands. The first phase of this project was completed and commissioned in mid-December 2021.
