Not every day that you hear about a significant investment in improving cargo infrastructure, and yet, this week, Glasgow Prestwick Airport announced an investment of GBP 2.17 million in new cargo equipment as well as cold-storage facilities. The former has already manifested itself in the delivery of a second new high loader that will support the airport in achieving turnaround times of under two hours for a 90-ton load. Other improvements include new cargo equipment such as 12 new dollies, a heavy-duty pushback tractor capable of handling any aircraft type, a new Rapiscan X-ray machine with 7.5mm steel penetration, and cold storage solutions with a controlled range of -30C to +25C. The airport, which does not suffer from a night-flight ban or other flight restrictions, is focusing on developing its freight services. Its two high loaders have 20 and 35-ton capacities.

Nico Le Roux, Business Development Director, Glasgow Prestwick Airport, said: “We have one of the fastest turnaround times for air cargo in the UK, no slot requirements, and no restrictions. This investment is part of our ongoing commitment to providing world class freight services with 24/7 operations. We offer a cost-effective solution delivered by an experienced team, and our road, rail, and ferry connections make us an excellent choice for e-commerce operations seeking unrestricted services.
