AGI OPENS NEW OFF-AIRPORT FACILITY AT NEWARK AND ALSO MOVES TO A NEW WAREHOUSE ON AIRPORT TO OFFER A DUAL-FACILITY HANDLING SOLUTION


The new system at Newark (EWR) will boost AGI’s handling capacity, reduce wait times, and help decongest truck traffic on airport roads as the lease on current warehouse facilities is terminated

Miami, Florida, USA, Monday 30th August 2021: 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.

The handler is also relocating from its 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 to customers.

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

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.”

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.

AGI has committed to long-term lease agreements for both facilities, which are in addition to the 120,000 square-foot Priority Mail facility in South Kearney, operated by sister company Cargo Force.

AGI is the largest independently owned ground handling company in the USA, offering domestic and international operations, as well as priority products, special commodities, and USPS Postal Operations.

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.
