Airports Company South Africa says the country’s flagship airport, O.R. Tambo International, is well positioned as a logistics and distribution hub for air cargo.

“A combination of sufficient cargo capacity, strategic location, high levels of connectivity, accessibility to major routes and world-class infrastructure position O.R. Tambo International as a cargo and logistics super site,” says O.R.Tambo International Airport General Manager Bongiwe Pityi.

In a few days’ Air Cargo Africa 2015 will kick off, attracting logistics and transport players from the rest of Africa and around the world. The event, themed Air Cargo: Africa’s path to sustainable growth, takes place from February 25 to 27 at Emperors Palace and Casino Resort, in Ekurhuleni, east of Johannesburg.

“Air Cargo Africa 2015 is an appropriate platform for air cargo players from all over the world to assess the trade and investment opportunities that Africa has to offer. O.R. Tambo International Cargo Division’s vision is to attract more air cargo traffic to maintain and grow our status as the logistics and distribution hub for sub-equatorial Africa,” says Pityi.

O.R. Tambo is Africa’s busiest airport and is a vital gateway for regional and international air cargo. In 2014, it handled approximately 390 000 tons of air cargo, while a total of 18 million passengers passed through the airport.

Airports Company South Africa is positioning its various airports as international cargo carriers’ preferred partners on the African continent based on its reputation for safety and efficiency in the provision of world-class cargo management services.
