HUB logistics to COOL Nordic Cargo hub


The 37,000 square meters COOL Nordic Cargo hub at Helsinki Airport is scheduled to open in May 2017. Finnair Cargo chooses HUB logistics as terminal operator to ensure a smooth transition and optimized usage of the new automated terminal. 

Starting December 2016, Finnair Cargo will work in close cooperation with HUB logistics to maximize the use of the terminal from the start of operations. The transition from the current terminal operator will be carried out as a transfer of business, which means that the employees currently working in the Finnair Cargo terminal at Helsinki Airport will transfer to HUB logistics. 

"Cargo is an integral part of Finnair's growth strategy and we intend to make the most of the warehouse automation and process optimization capabilities of our new terminal,” says Janne Tarvainen, Managing Director, Finnair Cargo. “This important step is a great opportunity for us to significantly increase the volumes of cargo at our Helsinki hub. We look forward to developing the new cargo handling model together with HUB logistics."

Finnair's new Airbus A350 fleet will bring up to 50 percent more cargo capacity by 2020. Finnair has invested 80 million euros in building a new cargo terminal at Helsinki Airport, with special cargo handling areas for pharmaceutical and life science products (Pharma) as well as perishable products, including fish and seafood. The state-of-the-art terminal will have a high level of warehouse automation to ensure a high quality of air freight service and competitive handling costs.
