Last December, Groundforce Portugal reached a new monthly maximum for handling air cargo at the airports where it operates.
In total, 14,148 tons of cargo were handled at the company's terminals, regarding import, export and transshipment activities which represents a growth of 46 % compared to December 2020.
According to Groundforce, "This new maximum demonstrates the resilience and increasing importance of our customers' air cargo business and proves Groundforce Portugal's ability to keep up them in this growth."
Air cargo continues to play a key role during the pandemic due to its ability to transport essential goods quickly and safely (such as vaccines and other perishable products). Prospects are that the business continues to evolve positively at national airports, in line with the global evolution of the sector.
Groundforce Portugal is the largest handling company (ground assistance to airlines) operating in Portugal, and provides services to aircraft, passengers and cargo at Lisbon, Porto, Faro, Funchal and Porto Santo airports.
