Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is moving forward with a plan to develop cargo facilities that will help it improve ground handling capacity and efficiency.

Airport authority, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has selected a development team led by LAX Community Partners, LLC (LACP), and an environmental, technical and expert consultant team led by Ricondo & Associates, Inc. to deliver the work.

“In addition to being the busiest passenger origination and destination airport, LAX also is a key transportation centre for global cargo and a critical hub for domestic and international commerce,” said LAWA chief executive.

“This project will provide more technically advanced and efficient cargo facilities and capabilities that will allow LAX to better power the economic vitality for the City of Los Angeles and the greater Southern California region.”

In 2022, LAX processed more than 2.7m tons of cargo. Currently, the airport has three cargo areas with 27 buildings, totaling approximately 2.6m sq ft, and roughly 3.5m sq ft of aircraft ramp area.

Ranging from 20 to 80 years old, many of these facilities are at the end of their useful life, in addition to not being compatible with current industry standards.

“LAX’s transformation is being thoughtfully advanced, providing best-in-class offerings to the traveling public and businesses that rely on our infrastructure every day. Our cargo facilities are no exception,” said the chief development officer from LAWA.

“Through our Cargo Modernization Program, we will provide our partners with facilities that move cargo efficiently while having positive impacts on the surrounding community, L.A.’s economy and LAX’s broader sustainability goals.”

“Our revolutionary development at LAX would be the first of its kind in cargo history and would become the leading example for all future air cargo facilities,” said the managing director of Airport Infrastructure, Realterm (Lead Developer for LACP).

NEOLink cooperated with our order processing system. He did not replace it or force solutions. Logfret did it better than other companies on the market – it adapted its system to ours. Logfret didn’t come to us saying, “We have this solution, and you either use it or we won’t cooperate.

We made a huge improvement in global visibility with a global platform—anyone can log into NEOLink and look at a shipment anytime, anywhere in the world. We wanted a freight forwarder with a good technology platform, which could handle the complexities of our business and we found NEOLink!

My suppliers have less or zero experience with international logistics. Thus, not able to create proper documentation which leads to tremendous delay. Thanks to Logfret who provide training to all suppliers and work with us to build up a consolidation hub to reduce transportation costs significantly.
