Cargo handling services provider Alliance Ground International (AGI) has opened a new 76,000-square-foot off-airport air cargo facility five minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey, USA, to process import freight.

Arriving import cargo will be trucked to the new off-airport facility by an AGI in-house shuttle service, which will connect cargo handling at the two facilities.

The handler is also relocating from existing facilities at Newark (EWR) to a 24,000-square-foot facility on airport at EWR to handle outbound/export cargo and offer a Dual-Facility solution.

The off-airport facility will feature 19 cargo bay doors, active Unit Load Device (ULD) charging stations, ULD storage and cold storage, pharma handling areas, increased security, and easy access to major highways.

“Our Dual-Facility solution increases our air cargo handling capabilities while reducing wait times and truck congestion on the airport service roads,” said Jared Azcuy, chief executive officer, AGI.

“It is a solution we have tried and tested at our other locations, and it will speed up processing, making for a more efficient and cost-effective operation. Newark will shortly be taking back much of the warehousing on airport as leases expire. Our new facilities and digital solutions mean that AGI is more than ready to support customers in New Jersey,” Azcuy adds.

As part of AGI’s ongoing digitisation drive, the new warehouse features electronic flight boards, mobile technology for ramp operations, and truck queuing and management software.

The handler will shortly be launching AGI U, a Cargo Learning Centre dedicated to team member training and development, one of AGI’s core values.
