Swissport starts cargo handling service at Japan's Kansai airport

2012 03 07

ZURICH-based Swissport International is offering cargo handling services at Japan's Kansai International Airport, in cooperation with Finnair Cargo, since the beginning of the month.

The company said it has been operating passenger ground-handling and ramp services at Kansai International, near Osaka, for several years, and the addition of a cargo handling service completes its portfolio at this key airport.

The handling warehouse in Kansai has ramp access and is capable of handling all kinds of products, including bonded cargo, valuables, temperature-sensitive and dangerous goods, with ample space for growth in both its office and handling areas.

Rudolf Steiner, senior vice president cargo Middle East and Asia, said: "We are very pleased to have been chosen by Finnair as cargo handling partner for Japan and to provide cargo handling services at both Narita and Kansai airports on its behalf. Swissport began cargo handling services at Narita late last year, and the partnership with Finnair has enabled us to extend our services at Kansai to include cargo handling there, which fits perfectly with our expansion plans for Japan."

Jussi Mattila, director quality and security at Finnair Cargo, added, "We are continuously looking for innovative solutions with our handlers, and we are convinced that we have made a good decision in appointing Swissport."
