One of the recent initiatives undertaken by the Ministry of Civil Aviation pertains to strengthening of Air Cargo Logistics infrastructure in the country. In that context, creation of off-airport common user facility for handling International Air Cargo in the form of Air Freight Station is starting up.
At ICD Dighi premises Dynamic Logistics is already handling Air-cargo for both import and export customers. The AFS initiative will strengthen the facility and make the process for Air cargo handling simpler.
The Air Freight Station will be within the existing ICD complex in a dedicated 15,000 sq ft of covered warehouse and ample open area for parking and handling. A powerful new X-ray machine is also installed within premises.
The AFS is ready to go operational soon.
