Title of Project

Development of an Air Cargo Logistics Centre

Project description

One of the greatest challenges is the development of new Freeport zones over 32 hectares at the airport. It should be noted that the cargo market has been liberalized in 1994, which allows freighters to operate freely from and to Mauritius. Mauritius has signed 33 Bilateral Air Service Agreements with 33 Countries served by direct connections and via hubs.

Expected Results

Such project will reinforce the position of Mauritius as a regional trade, warehousing and distribution platform. Furthermore, the Air Cargo Logistics Centre will send a strong signal to the international trading community and boost up the business confidence of international companies in the Freeport sector in spite of the long lasting effect of the global downturn.
