Air Cargo Terminals: Front-Line Elements of a Universal, Ever-Functioning Global Network 821550
This paper introduces the reader to the air cargo terminal design process, and then utilizes three project histories to exemplify this process.
The wide variation in air cargo terminal designs is explained by describing the range of variables that form the basis of a forecast analysis. The range of resultant parameters that constitute the objectives and requirements of the design are presented. The typical major functional elements of an air cargo terminal are then outlined.
The particularities of the design process are exemplified by describing three major air cargo terminal projects including each project's history, major objectives, resultant design, and ongoing development. These are:
HACTL'S CONSOLIDATED AIR CARGO TERMINAL AT KAI TAK AIRPORT, HONG KONG
EMERY'S EXPRESS HUB, DAYTON, OHIO, U.S.A.
THE SINGAPORE AIRPORT TERMINAL SERVICES CARGO DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
