The facility, due to open in November 2022, will be Swissport’s third location of its kind in Japan. It will be used to support the development of air transport and logistics for the Tokai region, which is home to manufacturers like Toyota.

Swissport Japan provides ground services, including cargo handling, at six airports across the country.

Kazunari Yoshida, President and Managing Director of Swissport Japan, said: “We believe demand for international air cargo will continue to grow.”

He continued: “As a member of Japan’s logistics industry, we are eager to contribute to the development of the Tokai region, one of Japan’s three major economic zones, with our operations at Centrair.”
