A New Look Proposed for Future Air Cargo Terminals 780875

Airport land and operational constraints will force future air cargo terminals to assume a new look if they are to accommodate continued air cargo growth. Improved terminal utilization coupled with cooperative airline endeavors in the use of modular container terminals offers a viable solution which can reduce container handling costs by 40 percent and better through economies of scale. Using a building-block approach with innovative and state-of-the-art equipment, a universally applicable container terminal module is derived which can accommodate growth in customer service level as required, and in multiples can accommodate increasing air cargo flow levels. Example module requirements to the year 2005 are derived for representative U.S. cities.
