Cargo Center at BER officially inauguratedBerlin, 03.07.2013
The opening of the Cargo Center at BER will also help to alleviate the air cargo situation at Tegel. From September 2013 air freight can be trucked to BER for handling. The cargo infrastructure in Tegel is reaching the limits of its capacity. Since 2010, the volume of cargo handled here has increased by 60 per cent and it is not feasible to enlarge the Tegel centre by expanding the cargo grounds.
The Cargo Center has 12,000 square meters of hall floor space, 7,000 square meters of office space and will open with a capacity of around 100,000 tons of freight per year. It is connected to the apron directly through a separate access control point. The Cargo Center will be used for handling belly freight specifically on long-haul flights at Berlin Brandenburg Airport once these have been relocated from Tegel to BER.
