Infrastructure and Development unit, said: “The dedicated truck parking area
will further expand parking capacity in CargoCity South. It will provide ample
space and modern facilities, as well as improve cargo processes for all
partners in this busy area. The coronavirus pandemic has once again
demonstrated that CargoCity South is an important transshipment hub for vital
goods. We believe that the airfreight sector will continue to be pivotal for
the distribution of key products from around the globe. This is why we wish to
quickly put in place the additional parking spaces so we can offer our
customers even better service.”

Shipping and logistics companies sometimes have to wait for
their truck time slot until they can access the relevant logistics warehouse in
CargoCity South. In the future, they can bridge the time either at the existing
truck parking lot close to Airport Gate 31 or at the new parking lot now under
construction at Airport Gate 32.

This parking facility will be equipped with five barrier gates for vehicles entering or exiting. The sanitary rooms will be free to use for parking lot customers. The overall construction cost is expected to be in the low single-digit million euro range. In addition to the truck parking spaces, the new lot will also provide 23 spaces for cars and 2 for buses. These spaces will be separated from the truck area by a fence in order to allow access from the public area of CargoCity South.
