New cargo facility

Nairobi–Jomo Kenyatta International Airport’s new Transglobal Cargo Centre (TCC) will be the first fresh produce and cargo handling facility in Africa to incorporate a multi-storey ETV (elevating transfer vehicle)-based perishables handling system.

Located on the extended freight apron, the 250,0000 tonne capacity TCC will cater for the airport’s growing cargo business – a substantial element of which is perishables – replacing its reliance upon off-airport cargo handling facilities, and complying with the higher security standards demanded by Nairobi JKIA’s application for FAA category 1 status.

Nearly 300,000 tonnes of freight was handled at the airport in 2009 making it the second busiest cargo airport in Africa.
