Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) will showcase its latest developments at the Air Cargo Europe 2019, a leading exhibition and conference for the air cargo industry, to be held later this week, in Germany.
More than 2,000 exhibitors are expected to attend this year’s event, which takes place in Munich, from June 4 to 7, said a Bahrain News Agency report.
The event brings together the biggest players in the airfreight industry to network and explore potential partnership opportunities, providing an opportunity for BAC to highlight the advantages of operating out of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), as well as the improvements being made to its air cargo infrastructure as part of the Airport Modernisation Programme, it said.
During the event, BAC team members will showcase BIA’s ongoing development projects to international logistics companies and freight forwarders with the aim of attracting new businesses to the airport.
The event will also enable BAC to forge new business relationships with other regional and international airports and learn from their experiences.
In addition, BAC team members will present the company’s vision for BIA’s upcoming new Cargo Area, a state-of-the-art, automated facility that will help turn logistics and air cargo into one of Bahrain’s primary industries.
Through the introduction of the new facility, BAC aims to build strategic partnerships with multinational logistics providers, which will help strengthen Bahrain's position as a leading provider of efficient logistics services in the GCC and wider Middle East. At the beginning of the year, US multinational courier company FedEx Express signed up as the anchor tenant and will operate 9,000 sq m at the new facility.
