WFS WINS ATLANTA CARGO CONTRACT.

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won the tender to operate Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport's (ATL) new Cargo Building C, a key part of the airport's master plan to accommodate the future aviation needs of the region.

WFS is taking a long-term lease on the new building and will commence operations there in late 2019. The company said it will announce its launch customers shortly.

Located in the airport's South Cargo Area, the newly constructed unit combines a 120,000sq ft (11,148[m.sup.2]) warehouse and 20,000sq ft (1,858[m.sup.2]) of office space and will incorporate freighter ramp handling facilities and a container bypass handling system. To support customers' premium temperature-controlled products, it will also house 2,500sq ft (232[m.sup.2]) of dedicated cooling facilities capable of storing 140 skids, plus ULD containers for storing pharmaceuticals as well as other perishables cargoes. WFS is also starting the process to become the first cargo handling partner in Atlanta to achieve Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification.
